Apply To Speak

Please complete this form by December 31, 2017 in order to be considered as a speaker for the March 10, 2018 TEDxIdahoFalls event.

Are you (or is someone you know) exploring a unique perspective that’s promoting new insight? Pursuing extraordinary projects right here in our local community? Is there a compelling story that can change how we interpret and affect our world? Does the idea need to be shared to grow?

We measure proposals by the power of the idea, and if the platform of TEDxIdahoFalls can help propel the idea forward.  The speaker presenting the idea needs to have credibility in the space and be actively working on the idea, as well as have the time to work with us to do a compelling talk.  (Fair warning, it is a lot of work, there are rounds of coaching, reviews, all with the intent of helping you hit a home run when you walk out on the stage.)

We also seek experiences and look at performance as an integral part of the day.

We’re seeking proposals from the local Idaho Falls community, and beyond, for our TEDxIdahoFalls 2018 event. If you are doing something profound that’s appropriate for a TEDx talk, please fill out the form below. While we’ll review all submissions, we are a small team and cannot respond to each proposal.

Please remember that this platform is “idea-centric” and what we’re really recruiting are powerful ideas to be shared with our attendees.

Potential speakers will audition January 8th and 9th, 2018. Speakers will be selected and notified on January 15th, and must sign a release form.

Being selected as a speaker will require you to have your rough presentation prepared by January 22, 2018 for speaker coaching.

On the day of the event, March 10, 2018, speakers will need to arrive at least 3-4 hours before the event begins and remain throughout the entire event. We would also like our speakers to consider attending the dine-around after the event and continue the “idea sharing conversation” with various attendees.

We are building a powerful speaker program, seeking out extraordinary voices in our community who have a unique story or an unusual perspective – and who can convey it in a dynamic way. This is about creating unforgettable moments of discovery for attendees and viewers. If you’re applying to speak, it’s because you’re committed to helping us achieve exactly that.

Thank you for your interest in the idea-sharing community!
