The world is looking to innovation and technology as a platform for a better future. Where will the jobs of tomorrow come from? How will our children learn, shop, enjoy the environment, engage politically and give back? We’re entering an era where creativity will be integral to survival— a time where constant re-education and reinvention will be the key to remaining relevant. Our children will have to breathe disruption, be open to all possibilities and be the constant entrepreneur. What this future will look like is the purpose of this podcast. Brilliant Minds, a 2-day ideas festival, is the physical manifestation of this podcast. Created in 2015 by Ash Pournouri, Founder of At Night Management, and Spotify’s founder Daniel Ek, Symposium Stockholm provides a week-long festival for creative individuals with powerful ideas to come together and experience a creative home, at the intersection of tech, music, fashion and innovation.Curated at the heart of the Symposium Stockholm week is the flagship event Brilliant Minds. This is an intimate 2-day long event where the guests meet in a marriage of historic foundations and a vast array of creative sectors come together unlike anything the thought leadership community has experienced before. It’s a Coachella for the mind and soul, a voyeuristic peak into the human condition, and the joy and curiosity that’s awakened when humans interact, laugh and gather.We aim to break the hottest talent and be a platform for innovators to the world. The beauty of Brilliant Minds is its pristine vision toward the highest levels of thought leadership with no agenda, no commercialism, beyond spreading and generating great ideas, and bringing the best people together. We are an event whose currency lies solely in people and you can hear their powerful voices in the Brilliant Minds Podcast. This podcast will be the heart of our event. We will share the ideas and views of our speakers through it, and you can follow us on the road year-round as I meet with our Brilliant Minds community and build our platform of global creators, interviewing them, partnering with them on smaller events, collaborating and co-creating a better future together. Please join me, Natalia Brzezinski the CEO of Symposium, and be a part of this community.
