Become a Speaker

Do you have an idea worth spreading that’s centered around this year’s theme: “Dare”? Consider putting a TED Talk together and sharing it at TEDxPaloAltoCollege on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019. We invite talk and performance proposals, and a dedicated committee will review each proposal to create a cohesive, cross-disciplinary experience. Timing, themes, length — these all weigh in to the selection process. Preference is given to new ideas that are evidence-supported.

Want to know more about what it means to be a TEDxPaloAltoCollege speaker and why you should consider giving a talk? Be sure to read the TEDx Speaker Guide from the “big” TED organization about speaking at a TEDx event.

Application Deadline: Saturday, June 15, 2019
