By creating an inspiring and impactful place for the ESADE and Barcelona community, we want to awake all encouragers out there. The TEDxESADE team is thrilling to give, once more, voice to local and international people who want to share valuable ideas among an audience with a restless spirit. Let’s make May 4th 2017, the encouragers day.
Strategy and Sponsors
I once read we live about 30,000 days. I also read we are a miracle. Organising the TEDxESADE helps me realise the importance of life does not lie in the number of days we live, but in the number of days we feel alive. It is a matter of creating impact, empowering ideas and promoting joint efforts to craft the world we want to define as ours.
Every day again I am fascinated by the unlimited potential of humankind. People all over the world innovate and explore, they create and disrupt, they challenge and encourage, themselves as well as others. For me, this is what TEDx is about.
Being a huge fan of TEDx, I could not pass up the opportunity to be part of this event. My goal is to give more amazing people the stage that they deserve.
While in his days of agony, Alexander Supertramp discovered that "Happiness is only real, when shared". The same applies to knowledge and wisdom. It's both a challenge and an honour to bring TEDx to ESADE for once more, but it is an even greater purpose to deliver a journey of joy and enlightenment to the audience. May 4th shall be such a day, and all the team will do our best to make it happen.

Taking part in this event makes TEDx mission of spreading ideas, believes and encouraging others to acquire new knowledge way more possible than ever. Only by encouraging ourselves we may be able to encourage others.
Stories are powerful. They can make you laugh or make you cry. Stories help us understand things, make us experience things we never imagined before. In TEDx we know everyone has their own story, and we want to help you share yours.
Speaking is magical. Do it the right way, and you can put your ideas in other people's minds, and reorganise their way of seeing the world. The ideas and messages presented in TEDx events have the potential of touching lives and creating change, and it is an pleasure to be able to help in this magical process.
