Frequently Asked Questions

Who can speak at a TEDx event?

The TED format encourages reputable, honest presenters who will inform and inspire, surprise and delight. Anyone with an "Idea Worth Spreading" can be considered.

Can I nominate someone I work for or a client of mine? Can I nominate myself?
Yes.
Is there a deadline for nominating a speaker?
We accept nominations for future events all the time. It's best to make your nomination as early as possible so we have time to carefully review the speaker for consideration at one of our upcoming events.
How much are speakers paid?
Speakers are not paid to give a talk. For speakers traveling to present at our event, we do provide excellent accommodation.
Can I nominate someone I don't personally know?
Yes. Just tell us how you heard about them and why you think they should speak at our event.
Can I speak at TEDx by becoming a sponsor?
No. TEDx Talks are not intended to serve as a platform for advertising.
How many nominations need to be submitted for a speaker?
It only takes one nomination. Multiple nominations will not affect the speaker selection process.
How long is a TEDx Talk? Can I get a longer time slot?
Talks at TEDx events are typically under 18 minutes. We strictly enforce the clock for all speakers. Even with a short amount of time, a well prepared presentation can have a remarkable impact.
