Thanks to everyone who nominated a speaker for TEDxTbilisi 2015! More than 80 individuals were nominated — many more than once.
Nominations are now closed. Already eager to nominate for 2016? Check here!
TEDxTbilisi is back for 2015, and we need your help in finding great speakers!
We are looking for individuals with a strong connection to Georgia or the Caucasus. Speakers should have a message to convey, a story to tell, or a vision for us to aspire to. All speakers should be passionate about their topic or idea and that passion must come through in their presentation. Previous public speaking experience is desired but not necessary. Well work with speakers to craft the best talk possible. Please note that as all TEDx talks must be in English, all nominees must be able to give a presentation comfortably in English. Good TEDx speakers come from all walks of life and professions. Think broadly!
With just 18 minutes or less to tell a story, share an idea and get a message across, every word matters. The TEDxTbilisi planning team will help speakers make every sentence meaningful. To do this, we require all potential speakers to go through an auditioning process. Once speakers have been selected, they will be assigned a coach to help them refine their idea and enhance their presentation. Even the most experienced public speakers benefit from rehearsals!
The TEDxTbilisi planning committee will review all nominations and invite potential speakers to discuss their TEDx talk and/or to audition. We will contact those we feel will best be able to contribute to the overall TEDxTbilisi 2015 event.
THANK YOU in advance for your time, thoughts and contributions to TEDxTbilisi 2015.
Nominations must be submitted by January 25, 2015.
