On Saturday, November 26, the Grimaldi Forum accommodated a full house for TEDxMonteCarlo. With the theme “(r)evolution”, the all day conference focused on innovation in the areas of engineering, technology, the arts and design.
The goal of TEDxMonteCarlo was to bring together visionaries and experts in a wide variety of fields to share their ideas for the future, unite the community and inspire new thinking.
Although the Principality of Monaco is the world’s second smallest country, it boasts some of the leading business leaders, scientists, athletes and environmental experts from across the planet. With such a diverse community, Monte Carlo serves as a fitting location to host a TEDx to attract a spectrum of high quality speakers and participants.
Notable speakers, with a discourse of less than 18 minutes each, Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag, Creative Director Jenke Ahmed TAILLY, and Vitality Chief Health Officer, Derek Yach, among many other impressive names.
HSH Princess Charlene graciously wrote the program foreword stating “this event demonstrates the thirst for knowledge and understanding in the Principality.”
The Monaco community was certainly engaged at the sold out event, with not a single one of the 400 seats left empty – and with a waiting list of more than a hundred would-be attendees
