TEDxRotterdam connects students to current leaders

TEDxRotterdam connects students to current leaders

On Thursday October 13th 2011, the second TEDxRotterdam conference will be held in the Nieuwe Luxor Theatre in the World Port City of Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Following the success of last year’s event, the organizers decided to introduce a new concept, connecting leaders of the future (Bachelor and Masters students in their final year) to today’s leaders, representing various areas of society: business, politics, science, culture and social organizations.

TEDxRotterdam is a conference where people from different walks of life are encouraged to share knowledge, find inspiration and build their network. TEDxRotterdam is related to the famous American TED conference where innovators and leaders share their personal stories in 18 minutes. Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama, Bono, Bill Gates, Jamie Oliver and many others have participated in the TED experience.

Last year, some 1,000 visitors attended the first TEDxRotterdam live with thousands of followers online. In line with the TEDxRotterdam motto (‘Somethink Completely Different’), this year’s conference will again break down barriers by directly connecting future leaders to today’s leadership.

Apply now at www.tedxrdam.nlThis year, TEDxRotterdam will focus on Bachelor and Masters students in their final year in the Netherlands. As from today, these students are invited to apply for a ticket to attend the conference where 25 leaders will share their inspiration. In addition to this line-up of keynote performers (to be announced at a later stage), TEDxRotterdam this year offers future leaders a unique stage for meeting today’s leaders in real life.

The organizers will select the final list of attendees based on their motivation and inspiration. For those not selected, TEDxRotterdam offers various alternative ways to follow the conference: online on the website, but also at various side locations at universities and companies in the Netherlands.

All developments leading to the second TEDxRotterdam conference will be communicated via the web site www.tedxrdam.nl, Facebook and Twitter. The groundbreaking conference will be free of charge for all attendees, made possible by dozens of partners and many professional volunteers.
