An Evening of Creativity and Innovation

Written on September 9, 2013 by MRCB Staff & Students in Student Life

TEDx Team

Ideas are a dozen a minute, but truly great ideas need time. The idea of the inaugural class of students in IE’s Master in Market Research and Consumer Behavior was to organize a TEDx event at IE. Inspired by the possibility of what great thoughts may arise from Spain in these interesting times, 18 students set out in November 2012 to put together the very best of ideas on the topic of “Creativity in Times of Adversity”.

After seven months of diligent curation of speakers, hectic sponsor search, and planning the event to its smallest details, the show that unfolded on the 15th of July.  It was simple, elegant and left its attendees with several moments of inspiration. Whether it was Eva Herber’s focus on positive psychology for greater workplace resilience and success or Ricardo Reis’ encouragement to have more fun, Martin Boehm’s importance of differentiation in business or Paris de l’ Etraz’s call to take risks, the young and the experienced speakers enthralled the audience with the diversity of their views and a unified passion for their vocation. An equally enthusiastic audience participated whole heartedly in the interactions during the breaks and a brilliant moment of letting go, conducted by the actress, Patricia Morales.

Ending the evening with a networking event at IE’s Shigeru Ban Paper Pavillion, the organizers hoped that the event will be continued next year by the incoming group of students

In a recent article, two McKinsey experts discuss three strategies that executives can use to inspire their employees and help them perform at their peak.  Making work meaningful is not easy, but it’s a win-win for companies and their employees. Have you worked in a company with a high “meaning quotient” (MQ)?  If you have, you are likely to remember the experience positively!
