Next Salon

Have you always wanted to give a TED talk?

For the third year, we are hosting 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.  We received a huge number of nominations and have selected 12 people to present their idea worth spreading with a 3-minute talk at the September 18 salon.Each talk with be put on the clock and the microphone will be turned off 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.)

Admission is free, but registration is required.
