TEDxWinnipeg Speaker Application Form

We encourage you to read up on the TEDxWinnipeg speaker application process and some of the most frequent questions. As a reminder, a few things we consider when making our speaker selections are as follows:

  • The idea:
    • will it impact the audience, and how?
    • does it apply locally, globally, or both?
    • is it new or novel?
  • The speaker:
    • are you an expert in the field?
    • why are you qualified to give this talk?
Each year we have to decline qualified speakers or talks because they don’t fit into a cohesive group of talks for that year, or simply because we have too many applicants. We are looking for new talks though, so if you speak regularly, we’ll be looking for a talk you’ve never given elsewhere before. Ready? Begin!

TEDxWinnipeg celebrated its seventh annual event this year with a big growth spurt and a new venue. We had some big ideas for the event, but applying some caution, we decided to pace ourselves and have more great new things for next year. Reviews are…
