Introducing our speakers
I like cooking, eating and travelling. The essential thing for me is to get the information concerning the origin of the food I buy and eat. I want to know who it was produced by, where and what from. That is why I founded Sklizeno – a chain of food stores putting the accent on quality and supporting the local food production.

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBrno, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBrno event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. More about TED a TEDx
