NOMINATE A STUDENT SPEAKER

A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conferences are shared with the community. This means that if you are a speaker at our independently organised event, your idea will be recorded on video and shared with the community. Our events lack any commercial, religious or political agenda.

Our goal is to spark conversation, connection and community. We are not limited in topics and we strive for diversity in ideas and conversation. Your TEDx Talk should be presented as great, well-formed ideas in 10-12 minutes. All speakers receive training and guidance to deliver their ideas and to keep it within the spirit of TED and TEDx. We have lots more to tell you so please do contact us with questions.
