TEDxEdina 2020 Speaker Application
Thank you for your interest in speaking at TEDxEdina on Saturday, October 10, 2020 at Edina High School's Fick Auditorium. This application is the first step in your journey toward the round red carpet on the TEDxEdina Stage.
We are looking for a few exceptional speakers to represent the widest possible spectrum of ideas and points of view. These speakers must be able to deliver a crisp, clear, compelling idea worth sharing . . . in under 18 minutes, and with minimal reliance on notes.
Are you up to the challenge? We're glad you're here!
We suggest that you view this video from TED's Chris Anderson before competing this form:
If you'd like more time to work on your application, you can enter short, provisional answers for now. When you click on "submit," a link will be sent to you so you can and go back to edit your application at a later date.
We've extended the application window to April 15th. We've had to cancel our invitation-only Open Mic nights, but we will invite selected applicants to submit a 3-minute video after April 15th. We will have speakers selected by June 1st.
Thanks again for your interest. Questions? Contact us: organizers@TEDxEdina.com
