Javier Muñoz Senra

Director of Marketing at ESIC

The many changes in the society have produced new types of customers, and educational organizations should not remain oblivious to these changes. For this reason, I’ve been over 15 years concerned with improving the management of schools, and helping them to develop organizational structures aligned with the real needs of its customers from a broad concept that integrates all of the stakeholders of the institution. From my web www.marketingeducativo.info, I’m every day trying to convey a passion for marketing and its application to education.

Francesc Sole Parellada

CYD Foundation Vicepresident

My name is Francesc Solé Parellada, or Paco Solé. I work as a professor at the “Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya” and I am vice president in the CYD Foundation. All my life I have faced the challenge of learning disciplines having only one tenth of the required time to do so, or drawing conclusions from situations in which the knowledge of the model or the vocabulary were essential for audiences that ignored it. I think I learned the power of images, parables, and to appeal to intuition rather than knowledge, and without cheating.

Pediatrician and President of the Catalan Association for Breastfeeding

I have 50 years. The first 21 I was a full-time son, an experience that, after a few years of transition, I found very useful to be father for the last 27 years. I remember many things from my childhood, so I know that children have feelings, they don’t do things to annoy and they don’t cry for no reason. I am a pediatrician, and that allowed me to meet many parents and see what are the most common doubts and fears. I have written several books that help parents to attempt to solve these doubts and remember the child they were.

TED Curator.

Chris Anderson was born in a small village in Pakistan and raised in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, where his father worked as a surgeon in the missions. He graduated from Oxford University in philosophy and later he began to work as a journalist. After several years in radio stations and newspapers, he was engaged by the appearance of a new artifact, something strange called “personal computer”. He achieved a position of editor in one of the first magazines in the UK about computers and one year later, in 1985, he launched a small start-up to publish his own magazine. The success of this launch led him to publish more magazines and his company, Future Publishing, grew rapidly under the slogan “media with passion.”

Anderson extended his business to the U.S. in 1994, where he created Imagine Media, publisher of Business 2.0 magazine and creator of the popular gaming website IGN. Anderson’s group edited more than 100 monthly magazines, employing 2,000 people. The Group’s management allowed Anderson to create a nonprofit foundation, The Sapling Foundation, which aims to find new ways to tackle global problems through the use of media, technology, entertainment and, mainly, ideas. Sapling bought the TED conferences in 2001 and, since then, Anderson has changed his commitment in order to focus on growing TED.

Questioning paradigms

Publicado por | Blog, Sin categoría | Sin comentarios

We want to spread the TEDx spirit to the whole region of Valencia and try to serve as an inspiration to others so that they organize their own  TEDx event.

We think that  the best way to start  is challenging old paradigms from several areas. So we have invited a group of high-level speakers that are, not only the best professionals in their fields, but they also enjoy their work and when they expose their opinions and the way of approaching their days, it’s evident that they are in their element. Do you dare to transform into reality risky proposals that can achieve the social progress we need? TEDxValencia is your people.
