About this event

Our aim was to invite inspirational guests to an exciting venue to watch passionate talks and discuss inspiration. To this end, 40 people met with the same goal: to discuss inspiration live with the help of some of the best TED Talks and some of the best speakers in Sweden.

The result: An inspiring night!
