TEDxTallaght brings together inspired thinkers and curious souls for an evening of thought provoking talks in the Civic Theatre, Tallaght. TEDxTallaght 2017 welcomes speakers from many disciplines who each want to achieve a deeper understanding of the world. The event will be held in mid October 2017 subject to licence,
We are looking for speakers that have great ideas relevant to the current theme – anything from building a better mousetrap to changing how we live, work, play, and think about the world around us. We want international speakers, national speakers and of course local speakers who have innovative ideas specific to Dublin or Tallaght. Submit your contact information and a little about yourself along with a 1-2 minute video of you telling us about your idea for your talk.
Or suggest a speaker – if you know someone that you think should be on our stage – please do make a suggestion!
Applications can be submitted to [email protected] and the closing date for entries is Friday 19th May 2017. In accordance with TED guidelines, speakers are not paid but we may be able to cover some small travel expenses.
A key benefit of speaking at TEDxTallaght is that your presentation will be recorded live and has the potential to be seen worldwide. Offered free to the public, TED and TEDx Talks have proven extraordinarily effective at spreading ideas.
Have you been selected to talk or are you thinking about speaking? Here are the Ten Commandments of giving a successful TEDx Talk!
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 TEDxTallaght, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTallaght 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.
