BRILLIANT MINDS 8-9 JUNE, Grand Hôtel

is the intimate flagship event of Symposium Stockholm that gathers the world’s edgiest creators and purposeful leaders. Through Brilliant Minds we create a collaborative platform for innovating the future by relentless challenging the present. The beauty of Brilliant Minds is its pristine vision toward the highest levels of thought leadership with no agenda, no commercialism or bought messaging, beyond spreading and generating great ideas, and bringing the best people together. We are an event whose currency lies solely in people. We break the hottest talent and are a platform for next generation innovators to the world.

Numanity

The marriage between humanity and technology is the great test of modern times. Soon everything will be connected to the Internet. Politics, personal identity and tech will need to speak a more unified language and build a common story of the next wave of human evolution. At Brilliant Minds 2017 we co-write the narrative of “Numanity”, the story and values that will drive the future of how humans will relate to technology and how technology will change the definition of humanity. This is an unparalleled opportunity to participate in collaborative creativity at the highest levels and be exposed to the inner circle of the world’s most exclusive, uncompromised talent. Join our community of tomorrow’s creatives making the world a better place.
