Time is changing. World is changing. Jobs are changing. Technology is changing. Everything is changing and in this multidisciplinary environment some people cannot change. They are "quants".

"Quants" don't like leaving their professional comfort zones, struggle with ambiguity, are usually Mathematically minded, are obsessed with objectivity, believe that more information means more certainty, exhibit a fairly closed mind and struggle in negotiations and communicating well.

Are you a "quant"? You have no time to waste. Changing the "Quant" mentality takes real effort, but to remain competitive and differentiate yourself today, your professional comfort zone needs to be the world.

Paris de l'Etraz can guide you in this transformation. Some time ago he decided to leave his comfort zone and become an entrepreneur... and he loves to show all of us how we can (and must) open our professional minds.

About TEDx
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
