Call for Proposals

The TEDxLSSU 2023 Planning Committee is seeking proposals from potential speakers for our March 2023 event.

The TEDxLSSU 2023 theme is “Identity”, and we are very excited to see what new directions our speakers take this concept.  We are seeking talks that:

  • share a new idea with the audience;
  • show your enthusiasm for your subject;
  • tell a story that takes listeners on a journey;
  • show the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, and the world.

Speakers selected for TEDxLSSU 2023 are:

  • expected to adhere to the TED talk guidelines; talks should not have commercial, religious or political agendas, and should utilize only good science;
  • expected to learn their speech and not rely on stage notes during the event;
  • required to take advantage of the coaching offered by TEDxLSSU when preparing for their talk to ensure they “hit a home run” when they speak at TEDxLSSU 2023.

If you’re interested in being a speaker at TEDxLSSU 2023, please fill out our Speaker ApplicationThe deadline for applying is Friday, September 29, at 5pm.
