TEDxAarhus is not just a typical conference. Our audience will have high expectations of speakers, and a speaker team will work with speakers well in advance of the event to help shape a presentation that will enthrall on theTEDxAarhus stage. This is the place to give the talk of your life.
How do I suggest a speaker?
Use our speaker nomination form and fill in as much information as you can. This form goes directly to our speaker selection team. However, we have closed our form. We will reveal the speakers in our Conferize page, on social media, and on the website.
Can I suggest someone I don’t know personally? You ask for their email address, and I don’t know it.
Please do! Just let us know how you’ve heard about this person, and why you think they should speak atTEDxAarhus.
Can I suggest someone I work for, or a client of mine?
Can I suggest myself as a speaker?
Can I suggest a speaker from outside Aarhus?
Yes. We want to inspire Aarhus, and ideas may just as well come from the outside.
Can I speak at the event by becoming a sponsor?
No. SponsoringTEDxAarhus has many benefits, but a guaranteed speaking slot is not one of them. Read more information here if you are interested in becoming a sponsor ofTEDxAarhus.
Will it help if I submit multiple nominations, or have my friends nominate me several times?
No. It only takes one suggestion.
I want to speak at TEDxAarhus, but my usual talk runs 50 minutes. Can I get a longer slot?
We strictly enforce an 18-minute time limit for all speakers. This is the time to condense your ideas into a compelling 18-minute talk that communicates your best ideas. A carefully prepared presentation of this length can have astonishing impact.
Do you have keynotes or panels?
No. At TEDxAarhus, everyone will hear every presentation; we will have no breakout sessions or tracks, no keynotes, and no panels.
What do you pay speakers?
We do not pay speakers. We will cover as many costs as our sponsorship budget permits, we, of course, provide a pass to the entireTEDxAarhus event, and we provide pre-event training. We are committed to creating an experience that’s tremendously fulfilling on all sides.
What if I or the person I am nominating is not used to speaking in public?
Don’t worry! We have a team of curators dedicated to make your talk a great experience – for you as well as the audience. We will help you with inputs, speaker training, advice, PowerPoint…basically all the tips you need to deliver a fantastic TEDx talk.
