Royal Roads University is once again sponsoring this year's TEDx Victoria event and we want to be sure you, as a member of the RRU community, are aware of your opportunity to get involved. 

We are thrilled to announce that Speaker Application and Nominate a Speaker forms for TEDxVictoria 5: Impact are now live on the TEDx Victoria website.

Each of you know amazing people who could deliver an epic TED Talk. Please either nominate them so they are on the organizers radar, or encourage them to apply.  It would be amazing to have our faculty or staff on the roster. Additionally, we (RRU and TEDx Victoria) will be launching a contest for youth ages 12-25 to win a free ticket to attend this year’s TEDx event- stay tuned for more information on this opportunity.

Looking for Speakers

Do you have a deep-seeded desire to change the world?
Do you have a inspiring, innovative, informative, or revolutionary Idea Worth Spreading?
Is your work changing the way we experience something we already know?
Are you in the process of working or towards creating impact with your idea?

We want to hear about it!

TEDxVictoria 5: Impact will take place on Saturday, November 21 at the McPherson Playhouse and other venues throughout Victoria. Our curation team has been hard at work for months bringing together an incredible diversity of speakers for this year’s event, but now it is your turn to tell us what you want to see at our event.

What conversations do you keep having that you would like explored further? Who do you think should take the stage this fall? Do you know someone who should absolutely have a TED Talk? TEDx events can be a great first step towards that main TED stage. Simon Sinek, for example, spoke at TEDxPugetSound in 2010 before speaking at TED2014.

Whether you are interested in speaking yourself or you know incredible people who could change the world from our stage, now is your chance to let us know.

Applications and nominations are officially open from now until Midnight the evening of July 12.

For the next 4 weeks, aspiring speakers can apply to speak at this year's event. And, for the first time, we've opened up a form to accept speaker nominations as well.
