12 life lessons I learned at TEDxMadrid and that could benefit you
At some point in your life, your parents or teachers have no doubt talked to you in an effort to try to change some aspect of your attitude that they thought needed improving. Whether they were successful or not, if they had seen beforehand some of the conferences that have taken place at TEDxMadrid, they might have approached that conversation differently.
Because regardless of one's age, many people have seen one of these sessions and drawn inspiration from them, whether on a personal or professional level.
An idea in every talk
In fact, you could say each and every person who has had the chance to go up on stage at TEDxMadrid has something to contribute and an idea that is worth spreading. How much it connects with you will depend on many factors.
This is why it's so difficult to select the most notable lessons presented at TEDxMadrid. Here is a small sampling as we get ready for TEDxMadrid 2019, which will be held on September 21 and is sponsored by BBVA.

Why you shouldn't miss the next edition
The long history of this type of conference means that, regardless of your profile and/or what your aspirations and motivations are, you can always draw from them an infinite number of lessons for almost any area of your life.
TEDxMadrid, sponsored by BBVA, will return in September, with the retrofuture concept as the underlying theme to every talk.
It will be a unique opportunity for you to experience first-hand, and not through YouTube videos, the know-how and lessons that all the speakers have to offer.
