Auditions for TEDxGreenville 2017
For the first time, we are hosting a TEDxGreenville Open Mic at the September Salon. The TEDxGreenvilleSalon event gives some potential speakers the opportunity to secure a spot a the main TEDxGreenville conference in April, 2017.
Here is how it works. About a dozen people were nominated and have been selected to present their idea worth spreading with a 3-minute talk. Each speaker will be put on the clock, and the microphone will be turned off exactly three minutes after the beginning of the talk.
The audience will then secretly vote on their favorite talks, and the top speakers may be given the opportunity to present their idea at the main April event without going through all of the formal nomination process.
We will also feature a video on “How to Give a Great TED Talk.”

Admission is free, but registration is required.
NOTE: TED rules limit the number of people who can attend our salons. In the last few salons, the number of “no-shows” has been excessive. So, if you sign up and cannot attend, please let us know so we can open a space for someone else to attend. If this continues, we will begin charging a nominal registration fee for the salons.
