STEVEN VAN DER HOEVEN - resilience will lead the future Steven van der Hoeven is the survivor of a major childhood trauma. But he hasn't let that fact hold him back. Van der Hoeven does more than just try and forget his tragic past. He leads the way by making people aware that it is possible as an adult to pick up the pieces of a shattered childhood and achieve happiness and success later in life.
Despite the ongoing taboo on what he dealt with in his youth, he decided to share his honest and disconcerting story, for example on TEDxRotterdam.
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.)
