We are mega excited about the progress we’re making with this year’s event at Birmingham Hippodrome on Sunday 15th October 2017 as we prepare for the biggest TEDx the city has ever seen. This year, TEDxBrum is all about sharing perspectives. If you think your perspective needs to be heard on our stage this year, we are holding an open call for you to pitch your talk for consideration as a speaker at this year's event. As TED puts it, we are looking for ideas worth sharing, or - for TEDxBrum 2017 - perspectives worth sharing.
If you are interested in being a speaker at TEDxBrum 2017 and you feel that you are able to provide a unique insight that we would otherwise miss, we are holding a speed pitch event just for you.
Event: TEDxBrum Speaker Speed Pitching Event
Date: Monday 14th August 2017
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Location: Impact Hub Birmingham, Walker Building, 58 Oxford Street, Digbeth, Birmingham B5 5NR
We ask you to explain your idea in 60 seconds, and if we are intrigued we will invite you along to discuss it further. You’ll also get the opportunity to find out more about TEDxBrum 2017 and hear some of the other ideas too. We already have over 100 nominations and a large shortlist, so unfortunately we can't meet everyone individually, but would like to hear from anyone interested in nominating themselves or a friend on the night.
Pitch sessions are now closed. Join us in the audience and enjoy this year's talks from the comfort of one of Hippodrome's 1700 squishy red seats, book your ticket now!
