SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT: ALEX SABOUR
What do you believe in - when everything is taken from you?
Alex Sabour has had a very difficult year. He was doing well. He had a successful job. A good marriage. A fantastic family – most of all, his greatest joy was being a father. Then he lost it all.
Alex is going to talk about how to keep living, keep believing, after you lose everything worth living for.
Because, Alex still believes, he believes in life.
On stage, Alex will be sharing how he coped with such tremendous loss and overcame it, because he believes it can change your life too.
Join us at TEDxCopenhagen on February 7th, 2019 at Bremen Teater in Copenhagen to take part in his belief for a better tomorrow.
Alex Sabour is the founder of Gorilla Media Denmark

"To believe or not to believe"
That used to be the question. Today, believing in something is more complex, constantly changing and evolving. In a society that encourages individual freedom, we are constantly exposed to people who perceive the world around us in a different way. Individual belief is celebrated and although our beliefs may be different we are brought together through the knowledge that belonging is an integral part of personal existence
We are changing and so are the things we believe in and the values we hold. As Western values evolve from the religious to the individual and secular, our beliefs move beyond spirituality. Thanks to innovations in modern technology, a wealth of information is now easy to indulge in. But with an infinite amount of information, truth becomes increasingly relative, causing our beliefs and values to evolve.
What do we actually believe in? Why do we believe? How have our beliefs changed? In the upcoming TEDxCopenhagen event, we want to explore the modern landscape of what we believe in, what you believe in, what they believe in and what it all means to us.
From February 7th. 2019, Bremen Theater, Copenhagen.
