Be a part as a speaker, volunteer or guest

  • Be a speaker

Continuing from last year's TEDxStendenUniversity event we are looking for speakers and performers for our annual conference, to be held at Stenden University in 2017. We are accepting applications from people with any backgrounds, who would like to share their message with the community of Stenden, students, citizens, and businesses from Leeuwarden and nearby.

More information about TEDx talk can be found here.

Who are we looking for? 

The TEDxStendenUniversity2017 organisation team is looking for speakers and performers who could highlight the importance of openness to new approaches and in this way show the world from different perspectives.

How do you become a TEDxStendenUniversity Speaker or Performer?

At the beginning of the year, TEDxStendenUniversity started looking for speakers & performers for its upcoming event in 2017. Once the application procedure starts, anyone interested is welcome to apply as a speaker or performer: students, professors, entrepreneurs or activists – we are open for everyone!

How does it work?

Step 1: Just complete the submission form using this link and our organisation team will respond as soon as possible. Please aim to be concise, limiting your answers to approximately 150 words per question. Furthermore, you have the option of sending a video file with an approximate length of 2 minutes. This video should include an introduction of yourself and the topic you want to cover in our event. Alternatively, it is possible to send a link with an existing video of your presentation. This video will help us to get an impression of the topic you want to present in the event as well as your presentation skills.

Video and any other files (portfolio, CV, and etc.) which you would like to share with us can be sent to our e-mail adress

The submission will be reviewed by our team and you will receive a response as soon as possible. The deadline for the application is 06/03/2017 at 12:00PM.

Step 2: After receiving your application form and video, our selection procedure starts! If we consider you as a potential TEDx speaker for our next event, we will contact you via e-mail and arrange a skype meeting or personal appointment with you.
