  • We are looking for

    We are looking for speakers who want talk about “escaping standards”: Speakers who would like to spark the flame that might change attitudes, lives, mindsets and therefore also the world.

    So if there is any interesting topic you would be able to present, please send us an e-mail stating your idea and your experience concerning the topic.

    For us, the most important part is to find “ideas worth spreading”, so do not hesitate to contact us with any topic that you think might be relevant to the world. It is not necessary to have the full speech planned out already, after the selection of the speakers, there will still be enough time to work on your speech and its concept.

    If there are any online videos, interviews or anything else available that shows your speaking skills, please feel free to attach these files/online links.

  • Speaker selection and further proceedings

    In the next few months, we will collect applications which will then be reviewed. This might take some time but we will contact anybody who has sent out an application. We might also approach you and ask for a personal meeting/telephone interview and a short video of you presenting yourself as well as your talk to us, so we can get an idea of HOW you speak.

    The final speaker selection will be made until the end of May.

    If you become a speaker, we will supply you with all necessary information regarding your TEDxTUBerlin talk so you can prepare your talk carefully and give everybody their best TEDx experience possible.
