Discover. Fail. Reflect. Adapt.

30th of May 2017, Schouwburg Odeon Zwolle


Thank you for joining!

With this past edition of TEDxZwolle we challenged our speakers to bring into their talks those moments where they failed, but which, upon reflection, helped them adapt and get to where they are now.

TEDxZwolle provided a stage for ideas like new technological developments such as 3D printing, what we can learn from music when we talk about leadership, how to look in a more holistic way to healthcare and why we have biological tampons.

In addition to the TEDx talks, there were many other activities, from wine and beer tastings to test drives in a BMW i3. There were also workshops on various topics that challenge you to go from idea to action.
