Fabian Wassmer

Dramaturgy & Speakers

Fabian organizes several dozen events throughout Switzerland every year as a member of the Executive Board of Swiss Economic Forum AG. He loves it when a plan works out, but also needs the thrill when improvisation becomes necessary. He finds his balance back in the Bernese Oberland in the mountains where he grew up. Or during a hockey match against his two kids.

Claudia lives for events. In both her professional life as project manager and food & beverage coordinator at Swiss Economic Forum AG, and privately when she prefers to visit food festivals – with or without her Peruvian apron. Claudia always engages with a lot of passion and an ever better filled experience backpack. Claudia finds balance in and around the beautiful green river “Aare” in Berne.

Bastian Widmer

Head of Technology

Bastian Widmer might prefer to stay backstage, but without him, all of the technical elements that make TEDx events what they are would fall to the wayside. Bastian is the Development and Operations Engineer at Amazee Labs in Zurich, a paraglider and secret fan of all things Icelandic.
