“Ideas Worth Spreading” – The global TED movement

Under the slogan “Ideas Worth Spreading”, TED started as an annual innovation conference in Monterey, California. Meanwhile, it is a global non-profit organization to provide ideas a stage. TEDx events are licensed by TED, but independently self-organized conferences. On a TEDx event, each of the eight to ten speakers has 18 minutes to share an idea with the participants, which is recorded and later uploaded on multiple channels. TEDx videos have been viewed over 3 billion times all over the world.

TEDxHHL – The HHL student initiative

Organized by our motivated HHL student initiative, the TEDxHHL conference is the oldest TEDx event in the new federal states and was the first TEDx event at a university in Germany. The student initiative TEDxHHL is a diverse group of students from different nations and from both HLL’s M.Sc. and MBA programs. The planning for the sixth edition in 2020 has already started!

The Paradigm Shift: Review of 2019

On June 25, 2019, the fifth TEDxHHL event took place in Leipzig. Under the theme “The Paradigm Shift”, a diverse set of speakers shared their inspiring ideas with the audience:

  • The talk of Dr. Peter Horneffer spoke for itself: “How to Fix Global Physician Shortage: Change How Medicine is Taught”. Dr. Horneffer is Executive Dean of the AAIMS Jamaica, former dean of an Online Medical School in Samoa and condensed his 40 years of medical education experience into one of our 18 minutes TEDx talks.
  • Lucía González Schuett from the HEC in Paris made a self-experiment and spent one year without buying anything. She shared her experiences and ideas about the highly-prevailing topic of shifts in our daily consumption behavior.
  • “Trust the unknown” was the talk of former NFL coach Patrick Esume. Patrick “Coach”, Germany’s leading expert in American Football. Several times, he won the German Bowl, the Euro Bowl, and the World Bowl as player as well as trainer.
