Changes that come with changes: Get inspired at TEDxRSM

TEDxRSM will be held at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) on Wednesday, 19 November 2014. It will take ideas worth sharing out into the world by exploring the theme “The changes that come with change”.

TEDxRSM will be an immersive experience both on stage and off. In keeping with the spirit of TED conferences, our diverse group of speakers will give their own point of view about change, sharing their exciting discoveries and dreams with the audience. And since the audience are every bit as extraordinary as the speakers, they will have many opportunities to mingle and network during the event. Tickets for this limited seats event can be obtained here.

Among the men and women who will share their experiences under the pressure of the red recording light are:

Mathijs van Dijk is Professor of Finance at RSM, and his research focuses on the functioning of international financial markets. Professor Van Dijk will be speaking about the consequences of financial crises that go beyond the direct impact on the financial system and the economy, namely the decrease in life expectancy.

Milton Sousa is the Executive Director of MBA Programmes at RSM. He is a well-established thought leader in the field of innovation and organisational behaviour. Dr Sousa will be speaking about the changing nature of leadership in the ‘age of decaying power’.

TEDxRSM 2013

Last year’s TEDxRSM event explored the four core themes of RSM: innovation, spirit, sustainability, and critical thinking. Speakers shared their insights with an audience of members of the RSM community. To see the video of the 2013 event, click here.

This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED and will be held at the Erasmus Pavilion. It will establish channels of communication between students and professors, between prospective entrepreneurs and work field veterans. Its themes are ideal for introducing new undergraduates and graduate students to people who have succeeded in converting their ideas and inventions into successful ventures and enterprises.
