For the third year in a row Brilliant Minds is so excited to offer 200 young guests from local communities across Stockholm the chance to experience a taste of Brilliant Minds.

This year´s edition will once again be hosted by tech leader Binette Seck and speaker sessions at A Taste of Brilliant Minds will offer 200 students and young adults, ages 18-30, from local communities across Stockholm the chance to experience some of the principles and thinking of the larger Brilliant Minds event. The series of panels and interviews on stage will share powerful stories of discovery and moments of revelation, with challenging conversations and opportunities to not only take a deeper look at the world around us, but also to look within, to face our fears and embrace the unknown.

While the main Brilliant Minds gathering remains a closed event – with speakers including award-winning artist Ellie Goulding, bestselling author and award-winning podcast host Jay Shetty, songwriter and producer Max Martin, Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vohn, and entrepreneur and Sunday Times bestselling author Steven Bartlett in attendence –  a Taste of Brilliant Minds continues to be an on-record and open program, targeted at local communities, running parallel to the main event.

We are so excited to be able to offer young people the chance to be a part of Brilliant Minds – to hear from intrepid adventurers and inspiring innovators to better understand and  connect through Swedish values, and to collaborate and share their own perspectives. It is our hope that the audience stand up and join the conversation and play their part in the discoveries that are to come.
