for TEDxMuskegon's 2013 date have not been finalized. Applications and
recommendations for presenting are now being accepted.
Speakers of our TEDxMuskegon event will be posted as they are confirmed. We will be searching for presenters who will inform and inspire, surprise and delight. We will have 10-12 live presentations in conjunction with TED talks and other local activities. Presentations will be required to be below 18 minutes and this will be communicated upon acceptance of your idea.
TED and TEDx isn't a typical conference. The TED and TEDx audience has high expectations of the speakers. Our TEDx speaker team works with speakers well in advance of the conference to help shape a presentation that will succeed on the stage. TED and TEDx is the place to give the talk of your life. There are no keynote speakers, all speakers are equal.
TEDx Muskegon does not pay speakers. We do, of course, cover travel costs and provide excellent hotel accommodations. Most speakers stay for the conference, soaking up the inspiration, and connecting with other fascinating attendees. Other TEDxMuskegon benefits include a Program Guide with space devoted to each full-length speaker and a web presence on YouTube and other social media later. We're committed to creating an experience that's tremendously fulfilling and beneficial on all sides.
A key benefit of speaking at TEDxMuskegon is that your presentation will be livestreamed and could potentially be seen worldwide. It will also part of our beautifully produced, broadcast-quality video series that will be posted on our website. Offered free to the public, TED and TEDx Talks have proven extraordinarily effective at spreading ideas. The goal is to help shape the future of Muskegon.
Submit your contact information and tell us about yourself and your idea to be considered as a speaker for our TEDxMuskegon event. We will be looking for speakers that have great ideas about how to energize our earth, region, community and self. Or, suggest a speaker – if you know someone that should be on our stage – please make a suggestion. We expect to have all speakers confirmed by August 2013.
