We Are The Champions: Volunteer at TEDxBrum 2017

Champions 2.jpg

Home to the world’s most inspired thinkers, the TED stage is a global platform where cutting edge ideas converge and millions are inspired day in, day out. Now in its fifth year, TEDxBrum is an independently organised and volunteer led event, proudly based in our home city of Birmingham.

In conjunction with a global initiative to spread ideas further, the TEDx program was born in 2009 to enable individuals and communities worldwide to hold locally, relevant and independent events. As part of the global TEDx community spanning over 150 countries, TEDxBrum is Birmingham’s very own platform for ideas worth spreading. TEDx events are run around the world powered by the generosity of amazing volunteers and kind sponsors. We'd like to invite you to join us in making what will be an incredible day for us right here in Birmingham, as we present this year's event centred around the theme of perspectives.

Being a TEDxBrum Champion goes far beyond something impressive to add to your CV. Join the team to be part of a unique experience with some great benefits, including the chance to connect with new people with shared interests, gain new skills, and represent a global platform, with all meals provided throughout the day and a snazzy #perspectives TEDxBrum T-shirt that is yours to keep.

Being a Champion won’t be easy. You will be needed all day on Sunday 15th October, and unfortunately you may not get a chance to see all of the talks. If you’re really keen to hear the speakers or don’t think you’d being able to commit to the entire day, then being a Champion is not the role for you. In this instance, we invite you to purchase a ticket to attend the event and enjoy it in full. If you want to get stuck in and help make the day happen then read on, because we need you; your energy, your skills and your perspectives.

We are looking for energetic, passionate TEDxBrum Champions to bring the day to life and create an unforgettable experience for all 1800 of our guests. There are many possible roles to fill, including registering audience members, answering questions, ushering, and guiding people to and from the venue.

We need all of our Champions to be fully informed to give the audience the best experience possible. Therefore, we invite you to attend a vital information session before the event. We also think working as a team is really important, and we want to make sure you have a rich experience and get to know everyone you will be working alongside, so there will be opportunity to socialise as a team at this session too.

TEDxBrum Champions Info Session:
Date: Monday 11th September
Time: 7pm - 9pm
