This event is open to the public.
Tickets are available.

"Embrace the unexpected" is not just a theme, it is an attitude. It is to look courageous and curious towards the future and confidently embrace the manifold challenges of our time. To understand the new and unexpected as a learning opportunity for progress and not as a source of uncertainty. Such an attitude is needed in a rapidly changing world, more now than ever.

We want exiting speakers out of all areas of society who represent this approach to come to the TEDx stage in Bochum and inspire more courage and curiosity with our audience.

Astrid Schrader

Founder of The Arc
Work as an odyssey to the self Astrid Schrader, former Youth Delegate to the United Nations, former management consultant turned entrepreneur, and the Founder of The Arc, will in her talk find answers to some of the most asked questions regarding work life. How do we find, create or rediscover work that is good, that excites us and fulfils us at the same time? Work that allows us to set out boldly? Schrader argues that if we want to build meaningful impact, we can’t numb ourselves or hide behind expectations. Instead: we have to acknowledge and face our own inner rollercoaster.
