Speaker Hunt

Come one, come all! Apply to be a speaker!

“Ideas worth spreading. ”

This is the motto of the TED, and TEDx, where x = independently organized. But, whose ideas? The million-viewed TED Talks that circle the web via email inboxes and show up on Facebook news-feeds are generally given by big-wigs who own companies, have traveled the world or invented complex inventions. Obviously these talks become viral!

But here at TEDXCSU, the unique perspective is more important than the credentials.  We want to hear from the Colorado State University student whom has re-thought the way to reduce waste on campus, the community member who is committed to the local economy, or the professional that started their business right here in Northern Colorado. No big names, just big ideas!

Anyone from the Northern Colorado region can apply to be a speaker at the October 11th, 2014 event. TEDXCSU is not limited to Colorado State University students and staff. Nine speakers will be selected to give a talk to those who attend the event, as well as be recorded for the official TEDX Youtube Channel. 

Apply to be a speaker by Wednesday at 12 pm! Applications can be found, filled out and submitted here.

TEDxCSU is looking for engaging speakers in northern Colorado to share their ideas worth spreading.    

TEDxCSU’s fall conference is a student-organized TEDx event at Colorado State University. We here at TEDxCSU are pleased to announce the launch of the speaker hunt for the fall conference, taking place October 11, 2014 in the Lory Student Center theatre. The theme of this year’s conference is“Know better. Do better,” inspired by the late Dr. Maya Angelou who said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

We are looking for nine speakers from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to present their original ideas in a live, engaging, 10 to 15 minute talk. Interested participants can access the application HERE. Nominations are also being accepted and can be submitted via email to tedxcsuspeakers@gmail.com.

The TEDxCSU team is encouraging anyone with an idea worth spreading to apply. The deadline for applications is July 23, 2014. Selected applicants will be notified by August 15, 2014 and will proceed to work with the team to polish their presentations for the conference in October. Official speaker announcements will be made in August as they are confirmed.
