Where will our paths lead? What do we do now? These are common questions on the other side of the present — where resilience developed from the past and childlike enthusiasm for the future pulls us forward. 

Want to apply to be a TEDxGreensboro 2021 Speaker?


The TEDxGreensboro Planning Committee is seeking proposals from individuals interested in making a presentation for the fall 2021 TEDxGreensboro:NEXT program.

We will feature extraordinary thinkers and doers who can share ideas that may spark meaningful change for our community and beyond. The program is being planned for October as a virtual, live or hybrid event depending on COVID safety guidelines at the time.

The speaker application is on-line at TEDxGreensboro.com/speaker-application. The deadline for receipt of proposals is April 30, 2021 at 5pm.

Proposals will be reviewed by the TEDxGreensboro Planning Committee and selected speakers will be contacted in late May.

For this year’s theme, NEXT, TEDxGreensboro explores what comes after  — in technology, science, medicine, business, society, and our personal lives. Join us as we chase our imagination with curiosity, rebound from the unexpected, and venture into the unknown with courage.
