The prerequisite for knowledge exchange is building trust, says Dr. Mary-Rose Hoja. She explains that you rarely just sit down with any random person that you do not know and start exchanging your ideas - you sit down with someone you relate to, someone you trust. Mary-Rose Hoja also argues that if you talk only with the people you already know, your pool of ideas will be limited. To drive innovation, Mary-Rose Hoja calls on us to seize the opportunities we have for building new relationships in order to expand our circles of trust and, thereby, the potential to exchange knowledge and ideas.

Owner of Stockholm-based Hoja Consulting AB, Mary-Rose Hoja is an inspiring speaker known for her energy that motivates audiences to action. A Scottish lass by birth, Mary-Rose Hoja uses her skills from different cultural contexts to help business people and academics gain a competitive advantage. Using experience from the UK, US, Australia and Sweden, Mary-Rose Hoja teaches us that face-to-face communication mixed with strategic use of social media is key. Following undergraduate studies at Edinburgh and Uppsala Universities, she obtained her PhD in biomedicine from Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. Her leap to industry started during her PhD studies when she launched her language consultancy and communication business.

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)
