TEDxManhattan Open Speaker Call

17 Jun

We’re excited to announce an open speaker call for TEDxManhattan 2012 “Changing the Way We Eat” on January 21, 2012, at the Times Center in New York City.  If you are interested, please fill out a form at http://tedxmanhattan.wufoo.com/forms/speaker-application/

TEDxTalks are known for their impact and high quality – because of that, all speakers need to agree to the following guidelines.  (The talks only look easy to do!)

Speakers will be required to:

¨       Develop their talk by December 15, 2011 (1 month before the event).

¨       Work with a TEDxManhattan speaker prep representative to develop their talk and slides.

¨       Be available for speaker rehearsal on Friday, January 20th.

¨       Submit all completed slides to TEDxManhattan at least 2 weeks in advance of the event.

¨       Attend the entire TEDxManhattan event.  Any exceptions must be approved in advance. At a minimum, speakers must be available to the audience the break after their talk.

¨       Speakers understand that travel and lodging costs will be the responsibility of the speaker, unless otherwise agreed to in advance.

Our three session themes are Issues, Impact and Innovation.  We are especially interested in new, innovative ways to look at and help change the food system.  Talks will be either 3, 6, 9 or 12 minutes.


Please note that applying does not guarantee a speaker slot – we will be in touch with you in the early fall to let you know if we have space for you to join us.  Good luck!
