Call for Speaker Proposals

The keys to TED Talks are “ideas worth spreading.” TEDxGreensboro is not looking for “speakers.” We’re looking for new ideas and unique perspectives. We’re looking for people who can share big, exciting, and powerful concepts and unusual stories of impact and possibility.

You bring the spark and your experiences, and we’ll give you the speaker coaching and platform you need to spread your fire!

Here’s what you should ask yourself. 
Does your proposed talk offer a unique idea or perspective? Would your story inspire an audience to see the world and its possibilities differently? (Please note: We aren’t a venue for life coaching or book promotions.) Are you well suited to tell an audience about this idea? Are you working in this area or have your experiences given you a unique level of credibility in this space? If you answered “YES!” you’ve found the right place. Fill out our speaker application form below!
