Have you always wanted to give a TED talk?
For the third year, we will host a TEDx Open Mic at the September TEDxGreenville Salon. The “Drop the Mic” will give potential speakers and performers the chance to share their case for a spot at the main TEDxGreenville conference in March 2019.Here is how it works. Complete the nomination form below. We will compile the nominations and select 10-12 people to present their idea worth spreading with a 3-minute talk at the September 18 salon.[NOTE: We get a lot of nominations, so if you are not selected, this does not impact your potential for TEDxGreenville 2019. We encourage you to also apply to speak at the annual conference at www.TEDxGreenville.com/Nominate.]
Each talk with be put on the clock and the microphone will be turned off exactly three minutes after the beginning.The audience will vote on their favorite talk, and the top speaker may be given the opportunity to speak at the main event without having to go through the formal nomination process. (Just as a note… four speakers at the Open Mic made it in the red circle on the TEDx stage in April of last year.)
>> APPLICATIONS TO SPEAK AT THE SALON WILL CLOSE AT 5:00PM ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15. THE SELECTED SPEAKERS WILL BE NOTIFIED BY FRIDAY, AUGUST 24.
