Third round of confirmed speakers for TEDxVienna 2011


Our third row of speakers is here, adding to the line-up for the 22nd of October!

This time we have chosen carefully among the propositions sent by many of you on Twitter, deliberated and finally made our decision.

So here is our “Twitter-Speaker” and two other extraordinary personalities:
