TEDxStockholm presents the speakers for this year's TEDx talks on November 25th

Press Releases   •   Nov 14, 2017 08:00 CET

This year's TEDx talks will be given by particle physics, serial adventurers, artists, creative geniuses and covering topics such as technology, entertainment, design, education, science and society.

On November 25 from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Nobelberget, Sickla, TEDxStockholm will be hosting Lighthouse,

an enlightening and amazing experience of live TEDx talks where seven speakers will share new, brilliant ideas that will bring light into our lives.

Lighthouse will look into the past and future of music, what will prevail and what will emerge to disrupt industry, how the new generation brings some important lessons and challenges in the future workforce, how data can not only explain, but also empower individuals and break glass ceilings, how imagination cannot be defined by constructs of usefulness and pragmatism and how to keep it alive. We will explore what AI can offer for education, what you can learn by crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a row boat, and how to restructure your home so that we will not need planets of resources to support our needs in twenty years.

Two artists perform live during the event, we will see TED talk videos and innovative companies participate as exhibitors. The event ends with an after party that continues until 1:00 pm.

Some of the live speakers:

Dr. Elina Berglund is the CTO and co-founder of NaturalCycles - the contraception app which allows women to help prevent, plan and monitor pregnancies. Elina and her husband were looking for an effective natural contraceptive. With a desire to avoid the side effects of the pill, Elina decided to apply her mathematical skills from particle physics to create a unique algorithm that could accurately pinpoint when a woman was fertile - and this was turned into an app so all couples could benefit from the innovation.

Lisa Gunnarsson currently the Head of LinkedIn Nordics, has experience from leadership, sales and talent management and has led a variety of teams since the age of 23, raising four children at the same time.
