Our confirmed speakers in 2017


Unfortunately our speaker Martin Rohrmeier is not able to attend our conference due to personal circumstances.

We have won the theoretical physicist and passionate juggler Alexander Leymann as a new speaker and look forward to exciting insights into the mathematics of juggling.

Visionary thinking

Our speakers inspire the audience to perceive the future as something individual yet shared, something challenging yet definitely worth trying. Each will introduce a personal aspect on how to take the opportunity.

Skilled speakers

Why are TED talks so popular?
It's an open secret: Talks take usually 6 to 18 minutes and bring an idea captivatingly to the point. TEDxDresden assists their speakers by rhetoric training and repeated rehearsing to work out the essence of their vision.

Local community

One aim is to promote speakers from Dresden and Saxony as well. Thereby we increase awareness for local ideas and offer a platform for the development of our city.

Language of talks

Depending on the preferences of the speakers talks will be either in German or English. Our aim is to provide a balanced selection that acknowledges the language skills of our audience.

Our speakers in 2016

In 2016, we asked ourselves: How can we live our lives socially minded and grow together as a society?

Professors, social workers and forward thinkers from Dresden, Germany and Europe shared their idea. Among them were Prof Catherine Gyldensted (NL) calling for more constructive journalism and Jan Dirk Capelle (DE) who inspired us how to help people more effectively and rationally.
