The Power of Creativity in an Ultra Connected World: Alexander Bard
Alexander Bard, born in 1961, is a philosopher, writer, artist, record producer and a highly sought-after lecturer. Bard studied Economic Geography at The Stockholm School of Economics in the 1980s while building an immensely successful career as a songwriter and record producer.
In 1992, Bard co-founded Stockholm Records, which quickly achieved global success and became Scandinavia's biggest independent record company. His first band Army Of Lovers sold over seven million records in the 1990s. He is also a front figure for the new export of radical Scandinavian thinkers.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
