About this event

The appointment of Martin Cooper as an honorary doctor of Hasselt University is a perfect opportunity to organize a TEDxSalon with the theme Communication creates Change. This theme fits perfectly in the invention of Mr. Cooper: the mobile phone.

On the evening of the 26th we want to create an evening full of interesting stories about how new technologies can change the way we communicate and how communication can be the incentive for change. We’ll also try to focus on how to be successful in communication and how good communication can lead to succes.

Talks will be given by Martin Cooper, Angelo Vermeulen, Patryk and Kasia Wesowski, Filip Maertens and Pieter Vandervoort
