Patrick Cowden has held executive positions at Cap Gemini, Bertelsmann, EMC, Dell and Hitachi. As he witnessed first-hand how the business world often attaches more importance to profit and shareholder value than to people and the values that connect them, he is is on a mission to change that forever. The movement he created, Beyond Leadership, set itself the goal of mobilizing an organization's potential through deeper interaction between the people who work in it.
At TEDxRWTHAachen, he shares the story of how rewriting the rules of business can bring more humanity back into our work environments around the world.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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)
