Are you a person that loves to get to know people and share what you learn on stage?
Are you naturally funny and comfortable in front of a crowd?
At TEDxDurango, we believe the EMCEE for our show is just as important as our speakers and entertainers. Our theme for this year is "Find the Humor." We are asking all of our speakers to sprinkle a little humor in their Talk. Your job for the day will be to entertain the audience while creating an environment of humor and connection.
TEDxDurango is being created to foster and present innovative and inspiring ideas that will then be taken into the world to make change. We believe one way to accomplish this giant task is to touch the hearts and minds of the audience. And, we all know that laughter is a great starting point.
The role of EMCEE at TEDxDurango is not for the faint of heart. You will be asked to get to know each of the speakers and work with them to create a unique and humorous introduction. You will also be working with a team to create the script for our entire daylong conference. As you know, the EMCEE of any event sets the tone and pace. It is a spectacular opportunity for you to showcase your own talents and ideas about changing the world.
Knowing all of this, are you up for the challenge? We will be taking applications until August 1. Then we will host a live audition in Durango, CO, later in August. If you believe you have the unique skills and talents to be the EMCEE at the first ever TEDxDurango, please complete the application below.
