About two years ago I was connected with an awesome guy who was putting on a brand new (volunteer run) TEDx event and was interested in me coming on board as the lead curator and speaker coach. I was of course 100% in and along with the other team members started to shape the event from scratch.
- Deciding the theme and purpose of the event
- Creating an application process
- Devising a call to speakers
- Creating and carrying out the selection process,
- Deciding the final line up of speakers
- Coaching the speakers to deliver stand out TEDx talks!
It’s been challenging at times and pretty much everything that could have been thrown in as an obstacle (including a pandemic) was. However the team behind TEDx Moseley are made of resilient stuff and we can finally make this in person event happen on the 8th Jan 2022 at the Midlands Art centre in Birmingham.
And we are beyond excited!
Each and every person in the team has worked incredibly hard to make this happen. From the guys on the finance and sponsorship teams, to the event team, to the social media and website teams. I am extremely grateful to be part of the team and for finding and preparing our speakers and am so proud to now be watching their practise talks and being moved to tears by everyone!
The speakers we have selected have unique stories, messages, knowledge and wisdom to share around the theme of Spill the tea. All different in their own right but brought together by the theme.
And I’m letting you know all this because limited tickets are now available to buy.
There aren’t many left but you can still grab yours by visiting www.tedxmoseley.com
It’s going to be an incredible day with performances and networking opportunities and I’d love to see you there and say hello too.
