Interested in applying to speak?

TEDxRoseburg is an event where speakers will give individual talks on many topics, backed by science, data, and personal experience. The talks are chosen for their content and for being an idea worth spreading, having the possibility to change the world. For examples of past talks, check out our archives here.

TED is a global brand, and many ideas presented at TED talks have spread worldwide. It’s a great opportunity and privilege to be selected to speak on a TEDx stage. And to be upfront, it’s also a lot of work! There are rounds coaching, rehearsals, and reviews provided to help speakers hit it out of the park when they get on stage for their big moment.

Applications for speaking are not currently open, but we plan to start accepting them in early 2020. It’s a great time to start working on that idea you plan to submit for consideration. To help with that, please review TED’s Speaker Guide.

In addition, here are a few considerations:

— Talks must strictly adhere to the TEDx guidelines.

— TEDx speakers are not paid for their talks and are not compensated for any travel expenses.

— Sponsors may not be TEDx speakers.

— TEDx speakers may not use the TED stage to sell products, promote themselves or businesses.

— Every talk’s content must be original and speakers must give credit where appropriate. Speakers cannot plagiarize or impersonate other persons, living or dead.

Our theme for the 2021 event will also be announced in early 2020. For now, we can tell you that it will revolve around the ideas of community, togetherness, and lasting impact.

If you are interested in speaking, we’d love to hear from you. Please fill out the form below to stay in the loop.
