Speaker Application - TEDxLincoln 2020

Do you thrive in the process of taking something ordinary and turning it into the extraordinary?

There is potential for transformation in every moment of our lives. Deep within all of us is an inner alchemist, with the power and knowledge to unlock that potential and create positive change.

Whether someone has spent years perfecting a trade, or creating impactful change, events around us represent moments of inspiration to turn the mundane into remarkable. "Alchemy" is the celebration of how actions can have far reaching Impact through the harnessing of those inspirational moments.


TEDxLincoln will be in the evening of June 26, 2020 in Lincoln, Neb.

We have a multi-step process to select and help develop speakers. It begins with a formal application, followed by an invitation to some who applied to further develop their idea and ultimately we conclude with personal interviews before announcing those who have been invited to share their idea.

A TEDx Talk is a showcase for speakers presenting great, well-formed ideas in under 18 minutes. This short talk model works, since it only demands the audience's attention for a short period of time, decreasing the chance of minds wandering. In fact, some of our greatest TED Talks have been as short as 5 minutes!

We are looking for:

Something that’s new and surprising; an idea or invention your audience has never heard about.

A great basic idea (that your audience has maybe already heard) with a compelling new argument behind it to challenge beliefs and perspectives.

In other words, an idea isn’t just a story or a list of facts. A good idea takes certain evidence or observations and draws a larger conclusion.

If you have a great idea about “Alchemy” to share at TEDxLincoln, we’d like to hear about it by January 5. Complete the form below and let us know what your idea is.

Due to volume, we are not able to respond personally to each application, but someone from TEDxLincoln will be in touch if needed by January 26th, 2020.
