“The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply.” – Stephen R. Covey
A half day of sparkling conversations, ideas from various backgrounds and heart-warming inspiration – after last year’s success we’re back! TEDxHeidelberg 2017 awaits you with the promising topic “Active Listening – Call for Action” – eager to work with the community to create a future we want to live in. We’re looking forward to international as well as regional speakers, who dedicated many hours to share exceptional food for thoughts!
But we won’t stop here! We’re grateful to have Carmen Hentschel acquired as a well-known and experienced moderator, who will guide you through the day! Our participants can look forward to an interactive and enriching time. We offer vivid breaks, during which you can curiously explore our room concept! You can experience our exclusive art exhibition, which shows different faces of listening – brought to live by the talented Tapiwa Meda! Use this chance, listen to our speakers, engage with them as well as with the other audience members, widen your horizon and dive into new and sometimes exotic perspectives.
Spread the word – together we can make a difference!
