"For most people success is measured in wealth and fame and power. For me, success is measured by how many shining eyes are around me."
Benjamin Zander has two infectious passions: classical music, and helping people realize their untapped love for it — and by extension, their untapped love for all new possibilities, new experiences, new connections. Since 1979, Benjamin Zander has been the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic. He is known around the world as both a guest conductor and a speaker on leadership -- and he's been known to do both in a single performance. He uses music to help people open their minds and create joyful harmonies that bring out the best in themselves and their colleagues. His provocative ideas about leadership are rooted in a partnership with Rosamund Stone Zander, with whom he co-wrote The Art of Possibility. (from TED website)
