Offering unique and thought-provoking content is one of the three pillars of our conference. Of the more than 4000 TEDx events that have been held worldwide since 2009, only 180 TEDx Talks have been featured on the globally renowned TED.com. Three TEDxPeachtree speakers occupy slots.
About Presenting at TEDxPeachtree 2013
Not your typical conference. TEDxPeachtree maintains high standards for our presenters. In keeping with rules set forth by TED, presenters are not permitted to “sell from the stage” i.e. plugging one’s company, organization or product is strictly prohibited. Additionally, in keeping with the “TED” tradition, there will be a strict enforcement of the time allowed each presenter.
Mandatory rehearsal. To ensure high production quality and a consistent audience experience, we require all presenters to submit their presentation ahead of time and to attend a rehearsal which takes place the day before the event.
Presenters stay the entire day of the event. Connecting with attendees who hail from a wide array of industries including design, education, technology, finance, academia, etc. is part of what makes the TEDxPeachtree experience so unique. Barring emergencies, we prefer for presenters to be prepared to attend the entire event so that they may benefit from the cathartic impact of the complete TEDx experience.
Presenters are not compensated. However, we’re committed to creating an experience that’s tremendously fulfilling and beneficial to all involved.
Some TEDxPeachtree talks are distributed online. An additional benefit of speaking at TEDxPeachtree is that your talk will be livecast on the day of the event to a worldwide audience. Last year, we had viewers tune in to the live stream from every continent except Antarctica! Also, talks are professionally produced in broadcast-quality video, distributed via YouTube and promoted to the global TED community.
