Got an idea for TEDxTalk for TEDxMelbourne?
Remember that TEDxTalks are a global brand and not everyone who applies gets to talk. Sometimes the subject matter is inappropriate for TEDx (no political or religious agendas, pseudoscience or commercial promotions), or the pitch (TED are very strict on commercial promotions appearing in a TEDxTalk) and in others it might be the content (not every story is TEDxTalks story)
We’d like to give you some idea what we at TEDxMelbourne look for in a prospective TEDxTalk:
A TEDxTalk is a story with beginning middle and end. It takes the listener on a journey and provides an insight into the subject that they did not have before. It is not a conversation, sales pitch or rant. It is not an expression of an opinion. Nor is it an opportunity to bask in the limelight.
In thinking about pitching yourself and your story to us please consider the following:
Finally, due to the number of applications we get, we cannot respond to every application. Apologies in advance.
