TEDx Ambassador for Eastern Europe.
Vlad Fiscutean creates branding and design for all 5 measurable senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch). He's conducting various research projects on multidisciplinary topics related to Brand Design, Sensory Branding, Neuromarketing and Corporate Images. He's currently writing a book about the findings of his studies.
He started his career as a sound producer and host in Radio (7 years), he studied Music Theory for 8 years, worked for 2 years in TV and won the Great Prize of the National Cinema Art Festival (10th edition) and as a Brand Designer and Consultant for companies in Europe and USA.
Vlad has a BA in Graphic Design & Product Design and an MA in Graphics Design for Advertising and Books. Last year he was admitted to TIFFIN University at their Executive MBA program — the only program that obtained the first place for the five most important criteria in the Romanian top of MBA/EMBA.

Most probably one of the first romanians to get acquainted with TED (many many many years ago). He made a promise to himself to seek the opportunity and the right moment to bring TED to his native country. The opportunity came just a few years ago when TED released the TEDx initiative. Needless to say, TEDx Timisoara is the oldest still active TEDx license in Romania.
After starting up TEDx Timisoara and gathering an amazing core team of 10 volunteers, Vlad went on to spread this expertise by setting up local teams in two more cities of the country. For the first time this year the city of Reghin (one of the few places left on earth where there is an industry of hand-crafted violins and some of the greatest luthiers) and Blaj (a place with a lot of history for romanians) will produce their own local TEDx events.
