On Friday, October 12th TEDxDayton will return for what will hopefully be a sixth sellout event, with about 20 speakers taking the stage to share their thoughts, beliefs and passions. And if you believe you’ve got what it takes to be one of them, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ve got to say. They’ll want to know what your idea is, why it’s worth spreading, why you’re the right person to talk about it and what your call to action to the audience will be!
The official Call For Speakers is now open and here’s the link to apply.
Organizers will consider speakers who can present ideas in technology, entertainment, design and social topics, among others. Ideas could include the evolution of social responsibility, the meaning of authenticity to different generations, the future of unmanned systems technology and impact, rehabbing the river for recreation, and the importance of water in our lives, for example. Formats include ideas worth spreading, jaw-dropping technology, an amazing personal story, new research, fresh takes on a unique trend, or any idea that fascinates or educates.
Selected candidates will then be asked to audition in a series of TEDxDayton Call for Speakers. “The Call for Speakers is how our TEDxDayton organizers reach into the community to find the best and brightest – and often undiscovered – thinkers, doers and creatives to the TEDx stage,” said speakers committee co-chair Ron Rollins. “We can’t wait to see who turns out.”
