Staff and student speakers wanted for TEDxUCL 2013
12 February 2013
This year’s TEDxUCL will take place on 10 March 2013 and UCL Enterprise Society, who are organising the event, are looking for staff and student speakers to present ‘ideas worth sharing’.
TED is a not-for-profit organisation that brings together the world's leading thinkers and doers to discuss a wide range of topics, and TEDx is a branch of TED that enables independent organisations and communities to hold their own, self-organised events.
This will be the second time UCL has held a TEDx event and the theme for 2013 is ‘Creativity and Innovation’. The organisers are keen to receive applications to present from staff and students of any level and discipline. Each three- to 18-minute talk should aim to convey a powerful message that may influence the audience's perspective on the presented subject.
All talks are recorded and uploaded to the TEDx video channel. Last year’s TEDxUCL event was a huge success and one of the videos – Hannah Fry’s 'Is life really that complex?' – featured on the global TED homepage.
If you would like to speak at this year's TEDxUCL, you need to submit an application form by 10pm on 19 February 2013. The application should consist of a short description of the prospective talk, a sample video of you giving a speech on any subject, and a short explanation of why you would like to take part in TEDxUCL.
