If you are nominating yourself, please check this box

There are conference speeches and there are TEDx Talks. So what makes for a great TEDx Talk? Here are some questions about the nominee to help figure it out:

  • Is the nominee capable of talking convincingly about what you fervently believe?
  • Is the nominee capable of being authentic, believable and credible?
  • Is the nominee capable of being warm and accessible - someone one would like to be friends with?
  • Is the nominee willing to be humble and not dazzle and impress?
  • Is the nominee able to share a story and make it personal without having an agenda or selling a company/product/service?
  • Is the nominee willing to work hard on your speech, as well as supporting your cohort of speakers to make their talks outstanding, genuine, and fluid?
  • Is the nominee ready to go through as many rehearsals as needed?
  • Is the nominee willing to submit your presentation’s material (including final script) 30 days prior to the event?
  • Is the nominee willing and able to attend the entire conference and interact with attendees?
  • Is the nominee willing to publicize the TEDxAlisoViejo event on your social networking sites?
Which of the following categories apply to your talk?
Have you already presented at TED or TEDx? (We give strong preference to ideas not already shared on the TED or TEDx stage) *
Are you ready to go through as many rehearsals as needed?
I understand that TEDx speakers are not paid for their talks and the talks must strictly adhere to the TEDx guidelines. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by email. *
