Without speakers, there would be no TEDxGlasgow event; so the time has come for us to open up for speaker applications and nominations in preparation for our event on Sunday June 8th at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
With this year’s theme being ‘The Common Wealth’ we’re looking for people to really open up and share their wealth of knowledge or experience in a certain area so that the city of Glasgow can learn, be inspired and share during our event.
We also really want to explore the needs of our city; hearing from speakers who have ideas, knowledge and experiences of how we can improve the common wealth of our city; and by wealth we don’t mean just money, we mean resources, people and anything else that can be used by the businesses, charities and people in our city to improve it.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional, a community volunteer, a specialist, or consider yourself just a person with something really interesting to share, we really want to applications from everyone who is interested so that our audience can hear from a wide range of speakers.
We’re not going to be too specific about what we want from a speaker, because there’s plenty of room on the application form for you to tell us how your talk can improve the common wealth of our city! That said, we’re really looking forward to reading the forms and discovering how you’ve all interpreted our theme of ‘The Common Wealth.’
OK, you know the theme, you know we want speakers, so it’s time to get nominating and applying. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
TO NOMINATE A SPEAKER: please seek their permission, then download our nomination form, complete it and send it to the email address on the form.
