Since the next event is in preparation, there is no information available for now. To be notified as soon as we know more about the subject, subscribe to our newsletter!
Easy: just subscribe to our newsletter. We will send you all the necessary information relative to our future events.
Our selection process usually begins with an online form open to all on our website. People can submit their ideas for conferences or speakers. We receive hundreds of suggestions each year!
A committee dedicated to the programming of the event then reviews the applications and establishes a top 50 of the most interesting suggestions. Subsequently, the 50 candidates are interviewed in order to learn more about their idea.
Once their ideas have been more deeply explored, a second selection committee – this time consisting of professionals from a variety of fields – examines the applications. The programming committee presents each application to the selection committee and the latter eventually votes to choose the speakers that will be part of the next TEDxMontréal edition.
Speakers are then coached all year long in order to prepare their talk, not only to make it a success on the day of the event but also to make it even more likely to be shared online in the TED community after the event. The speaker selection and the coaching of the happy few will therefore spread over several months. Currently, the application form is not yet online… But keep an eye out for it on our website or subscribe to our newsletter… The selection for next year should start in January 2016!
The TEDxMontreal team is currently complete.
When the time comes to recruit new volunteers, likely around January 2016, we will invite anyone interested to fill out an online form. So stay up to date on our website or subscribe to our newsletter to be informed about our next recruitment wave!
