SPECIAL CONTRIBUTOR: Andrea Sampson, Director of Programming, TEDxToronto 2015
After closing nominations on May 10th, we ended up with nearly 600 submissions – a record number for TEDxToronto! If you happen to be one of those who submitted a nomination for yourself or for someone else, the waiting can be difficult.
With this in mind, here is what our Programming Team has been doing behind the scenes to identify the 12-15 speakers who will take the TEDxToronto stage on October 22nd. Our team, made up of several speaking experts and voice coaches, has developed specific selection guidelines that are unique to this year’s conference theme, Thresholds.
