Call For Speakers
TEDx Centennial Park Women is calling speakers with new or unique messages, what TED refers to as “ideas worth spreading.” Our speaker topics will tie into the TEDx Women Conference theme “Momentum”. We expect to curate up to nine speakers. They will represent voices of and about women inventing new possibilities for themselves and others.
We would like our speakers to help us further the mission of TEDx Centennial Park Women. Our mission is to help curate and share “ideas worth spreading” that educate, inspire and empower women. We want to bring together a community of ripple-makers, men and women, in Atlanta who care about seeing women advance in all aspects of their lives. Our goal is to be a catalyst for fresh new dialogues and inspiration that help women grow as leaders who contribute to a strong and vibrant city, country, and world.
Our speakers can be of either gender and we would like them to represent a diversity of sectors: academia, art, business, non-profits. If you have some TED experience that is a big plus. We want you to be inspiring, aspirational, educational, informative, entertaining. We want to hear your personal stories as that is what connects people and makes you memorable. Look at some of the most viral TED Talks and you get the idea! You can also see our previous speakers and their videos on our blog.
We expect you to have a scripted talk that is a minimum of 12 and maximum of 18 minutes. TEDx speakers are not paid a fee and cannot be a volunteer or a sponsor. All expressions of interest must be submitted via this website .
