    Tips for a Compelling Speaker and Performer Nomination

    This year, we are enlisting the entire Toronto community in the search for our city’s innovators, changemakers, and disruptors. While TED was first introduced as a conference for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, topics of all disciplines are welcome. We encourage you to nominate speakers and performers of all walks of life, who you believe have ideas worth spreading.

    The TEDxToronto community nominations are open until May 1st at 11:59 p.m. These nominations will be meticulously reviewed by our programming team and eventually culled down to 12 chosen speakers and 3 – 4 performers.

    Never given a talk before? We’ve got you covered. Selected speakers and performers will each be assigned a professional coach who will work closely with them to prepare and develop their talk or performance. All the speakers, performers and coaches volunteer their time over the span of five months to ensure a memorable and impactful experience on conference day.
