TEDxDemontfortU is coming

ted logoTEDxDemontfortU is coming in June 2019.  Tickets are on sale NOW.  Click here to purchase.


  • In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
  • This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.

 If you would like to get involved, please email tedxdemontfortu@dmu.ac.uk referencing the working group you would like to join, in the subject line - 


1.Operations (looking after planning and logistics on the actual day)

2.Marketing and Promotions (supporting the promotion of the event)

3.Ticket sales (handling and monitoring ticket sales, checking tickets and ID on the day of event).

4.Multimedia and AV  (producing pre-event video, filming the talks on the day, managing sounds and lights etc).

5.Speaker Selection*  (a panel who will help agree on the speakers).


(*Please note this is for individuals interested in selecting speakers rather than people who are interested in speaking.


 Want to be a speaker on the day?

Please email your full name, a brief biography and details of the topic you want to speak about and the idea you wish to share with the world to tedxdemontfortu@dmu.ac.uk.   Please include a video or link to a previous talk you have delivered.

Speaker selection is a competitive process and the organiser's decision on the speaker lineup is final.
