Bruno Giussani

Bruno Giussani is the Global Curator of TED, the organization behind the TED conferences and the popular online TEDTalks, and the co-founder and Lead Curator of TED's climate initiative, Countdown. Bruno joined TED in 2005, and produced the first TEDGlobal conference that year in Oxford. He was for 12 years the organization's European Director and member of its senior team, participating in the definition and implementation of TED's strategy. He has curated and co-hosted TEDGlobal, TEDSummit, TEDxSummit and many TED special events around the world and hosted various sessions of the online TED Membership program - including the first two seasons of the TED Book Club.
TED is a nonprofit foundation based in New York whose mission is to disseminate ideas and knowledge. It does so through its conferences, TEDtalks available on TED.com and on many other platforms for free (and subtitled in 115 languages), the TED Fellowship, over 3500 local independently-organized events taking place every year under the label TEDx, the TED-Ed educational initiative, the Audacious Project, television (such as TED Talks India) and radio programs, podcasts (via the TED Audio Collective), and more. (See time-lapse of the TED theatre here)

Since 2005, Bruno has curated hundreds of TED Talks, including two by His Holiness Pope Francis (2017 - read the making-of, and 2020 - read the making-of, and here is the English voiceover - the talk was given in Italian), Prince William (read the making-of), Antonio Guterres (2015, 2020), Ursula von der Leyen, Margrethe Vestager, Elif Shafak (2010, 2017, 2020), Kim Stanley Robinson, Daniel Suarez, Jennifer Doudna, Tzeporah Berman, Solomon Goldstein-Rose, Fehinti Balogun, Sister True Dedication, Dawn Lippert, Gabrielle Walker, Nemonte Nenquimo, Susan Cain & Min Kym, Vera Songwe, Nili Gilbert, Jim Hagemann Snabe, Vishaan Chakrabarti, Shweta Narayan, Alejandro Aravena, Melissa Fleming, Al Gore, John Kerry & Al Gore, Nicola Sturgeon (2019, 2021), Nigel Topping, Carole Cadwalladr, David Lammy, Christiana Figueres, Severn Cullis-Suzuki, James Thornton, Solitaire Townsend, Maria Gallucci, Vaitea Cowan, Miguel Modestino, Patricia Villarrubia-Gomez, Ermias Kebreab, Ian Bremmer, Selina Neirok Leem, Sathya Raghu, Dan Jorgensen, Lucas Joppa, Susan Ruffo, Gavin McCormick, Naima Penniman, The Children of Palau, Farwiza Farhan, Enric Sala, Chibeze Ezekiel, Rebecca Henderson, Amina J.

Besides his role at TED, Bruno is the host of the annual Sparks! conference at CERN in Geneva and of the second season of the CERN Sparks Podcast, and the co-host of the Global Investment Forum, also taking place in Geneva. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of Tinext Group, a Swiss software firm he co-founded. Through his advisory bureau Giussani Group LLC he advises public organizations as well as private companies. He is an author and a frequent public speaker, and the recipient of a 2022 Bogliasco Foundation Fellowship in Public Humanities.

In 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015, the magazine Wired UK selected him as one of the "Wired 100", the 100 most influential Europeans. In Spring 2013 he was selected as one of Good Magazine's "GOOD 100". From 2005 to 2015 Bruno has also co-founded, curated and hosted the annual Forum des 100, which is considered among the leading conferences on politics and the economy in Switzerland. For five years, from 2017 to 2022, he was the Chairman of the Geneva International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights (FIFDH), the world's leading film festival devoted to human rights.

In January 2016 he received the "SwissAward/Person of the year 2015" in the category Economy.

A graduate in Political Science at the University of Geneva, prior to joining TED, Bruno was a well-known writer and commentator. For several years he edited the political section of Swiss news magazine L'Hebdo, before becoming its US correspondent and, later, its technology columnist and editor of the first Swiss online news web site, Webdo, launched in 1995. His writings have been published in newspapers, magazines and websites in Switzerland, across Europe and the United States, including the New York Times (for which he wrote the Eurobytes column from 1996 to 2000), the Wall Street Journal Europe, Wired magazine, The Economist, Business Week, The International Herald Tribune, the Neue Zurcher Zeitung (Switzerland), L'Hebdo (Switzerland), Liberation (France), Il Sole-24Ore and La Repubblica (Italy), The Huffington Post, and more. He was also the European editor of the now-defunct Industry Standard magazine and one of the founding editors of its European edition, and the producer of the magazine's Global Internet Summit (Barcelona, 2000). His former blog, LunchOverIP, which he wrote from 2005 to 2008 won him a national Swiss award in 2006, while his articles on technology and innovation in L'Hebdo were awarded in 1995 the Swiss Prize for Technology Journalism. He was a Knight Fellow at Stanford University during the 2003/04 academic year, and an Affiliated Fellow at that university's Institute for International Studies, and later a member of the Board of the Knight Fellowships from 2008 to 2016.

Bruno has authored or co-authored several books, favoring a pragmatic, no-hype approach. A reviewer in The International Herald Tribune wrote that in his book "Roam. Making Sense of the Wireless Internet" (Random House, 2001 and 2002; Chinese edition, Citic, 2002; Italian edition, Fazi Editore, 2002) he "first bursts the bubble of mobile hype and then explains why wireless communications really matters and how it works."

From 1998 to 2000 he was Head of Online Strategy at the World Economic Forum. In 2014 and 2015 he was a Senior Adviser to the Atlantic Council. He has also been instrumental in launching and helping develop [y]our 2040, the LIFT conference, the global Sandbox Network and the Postcode Lottery Green Challenge and was an adviser to the DLD conference, the Brain Forum and the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit among other ideas-sharing initiatives, and to Canal+ Kindia2015 project. He curated the speakers series of the first Homo Faber exhibition of European craftsmanship (Venice, Italy). He was a member of the jury of Bloomberg Philanthropies' Mayors Challenge 2014 and a member of the Jury of UNHCR's 2018 and 2019 Nansen Award.

Bruno has co-founded two Internet companies: Tinet, in 1995, the first Internet service provider in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland (then sold to Cablecom, now UPC), and Tinext, in 2000, a software firm with offices in Switzerland, Italy and the UAE, of which he is Vice-Chairman. He was the Director of Innovation of the short-lived startup 3GMobile, an attempt to launch a new mobile telecom operator in Switzerland. From 2002 to 2008 he was a member of the Board of Namics, the largest Swiss Internet consultancy.
