TEDX is look­ing for en­gag­ing speak­ers

Wexford People - - NEWS -

TEDX Wex­ford are seek­ing in­no­va­tive and in­flu­en­tial speak­ers to take to stage at the Na­tional Opera House, Wex­ford on Fri­day, Novem­ber 24, to de­liver orig­i­nal, unique and en­gag­ing ideas around the theme of ‘Cross­roads - Where are we go­ing?’.

The aim is to in­spire, sur­prise and de­light with a ‘Cross­roads’ con­cept or is­sue that you are pas­sion­ate about.

As we re­sist, shape, and em­brace change, in our en­vi­ron­ment, so­ci­ety, econ­omy and cul­ture it’s ex­cit­ing to re­flect upon the new di­rec­tions and tran­si­tions ahead. Dif­fer­ences, de­ci­sions, op­por­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges will abound.

How will sci­ence, pol­i­tics, me­dia, com­merce, sports, ed­u­ca­tion, agri­cul­ture or the arts re­spond and evolve?

The most suc­cess­ful TEDx talks are more than just lec­tures that de­liver facts.

They of­ten out­line sci­en­tific break­throughs, ge­nius in­ven­tions or a rev­o­lu­tion­ary the­ory.

Yet they can also be sim­ple how-to pre­sen­ta­tions, hu­man in­sight sto­ries or per­haps just a re­minder of what mat­ters most in life.

An idea is any­thing that can change how peo­ple see the world.

To take part in what is billed as ‘one of the world’s most in­spir­ing move­ments’, send am email out­lin­ing your idea, a brief per­sonal pro­file and a short video show­cas­ing your pre­sen­ta­tion skills and con­cept to speak­ers@tedxwex­ford.ie .

The ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line is Oc­to­ber 15.
