TEDxHWZ - The Future World

TEDxHWZ goes digital

Since February 2020 the EMBA Digital Leadership students have been disrupted in many ways. By the approaches of the top-class lecturers. By the novel credits and their effects on the learning curve. Or by Corona and the new ways in which digital leaders have made their decisions.
Surrounded by many factors the decision-making process in regards of the event type was thrilling like a crime novel. As a result, the group of various leaders designed the first TEDxHWZ event as a purely online event. The audience will follow this on 21 November from 9 to 15 o’clock in the livestream.

How we got here

In “The Future World” five of the EMBA students qualified for their talks in an exciting selection procedure. All were called upon to present their future-oriented topics to the demanding jury. Communication expert Hugo Bigi, the TEDx licence holders Urs Bucher and Sunnie Groeneveld had a difficult decision to make. Five of them made the race and will delight their audience with their stories, ideas and approaches. In addition to these outstanding personalities, eight other TEDx speakers will be joining the event.
