Apply To Speak
Application DeadlinePlease complete this form by October 27, 2019 in order to be considered as a speaker for the March 2020 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 2020 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 in late October/early November 2019. Speakers will be selected and notified shortly after, and must sign a release form.
Being selected as a speaker will require you to have your rough presentation prepared early to mid November 2019 for speaker coaching.
On the day of the event, Saturday, March 7, 2020, speakers will need to arrive early the morning of the event to practice, and remain throughout the entire event, and the post-event dinner after the event and continue the “idea sharing conversation” with various attendees. The post-event dinner has been a rewarding experience for both speakers and attendees to gather together after the event, year after year!
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!
