Partnerships with TEDxBrayfordPool leverage everything that makes us stand apart: our global reach and research-based ideas; our live knowledge-sharing conferences and events; our TED Talk style content and format; and our progressive approach to education through storytelling.

WHY PARTNER?

A partnership with TEDxBrayford Pool is truly unique, immersive and meaningful. It has the power to create change, to transform minds and perspectives and to shift cultures within organisations and communities. There are three key things that make this happen:

1/

TEDxBrayfordPool partners engage in an authentic dialogue with our speakers and attendees, who are curated from the worlds of science, design, technology, business, education, and the arts. This is an invitation and an opportunity for your organisation to become a part of TED’s culture of innovation focused on ideas worth spreading.

2/

TEDxBrayfordPool attendees are a unique breed: open-minded, curious, intelligent, and hungry to learn more about the world. Our audience wants to hear ideas from Lincolnshire's most innovative and influential people. We consistently draw the region’s leading thinkers and doers ranging from CEOs and scientists to academics and policymakers.

3/

TEDxBrayfordPool speakers tackle humanity’s toughest questions, answering with innovation, enterprise, and enduring optimism. We seek to highlight ideas that inspire people to change their lives and communities. Our talks have made local and global impact. As a TEDxBrayfordPool partner, you will be part of this mission.

An incredible journey awaits

Our goal is to create lasting partnerships with organisations that want to participate in and add depth to the TEDxBrayford Pool experience. ​

We work with you to co-create and ensure you are participating in TEDxBrayford Pool in a way that reflects the heart of both our organisations - it’s a great way to:

LAUNCH A BIG IDEA:

Test new ideas with the TEDxBrayford Pool community

— a group of critical thinkers and bold doers.

MITIGATING COSTS

Ambitious partnership

targets for a lasting legacy 

This year our goal is to return fully to the stage show experience we became known for before the pandemic. We’re planning the return of live streaming in order to share content with a larger audience on the day. To achieve this we intend to bring in an external video production team, which will also enable us to improve the quality of our legacy video output.

We also plan to make this flagship event our greenest yet by doing away with audience goodie bags - which sadly last year mainly ended up in the bins around the venue. We will also be working with MySquareMetre to offset our carbon footprint. 

This year presents our most ambitious budget targets to date. With extended events and increased focus on quality come increased costs. We need to raise £15,500.00 to achieve our full programme. We've broken this into a core and stretch budget.

Mitigating costs

& building community 

Funding TEDxBrayford Pool is achieved entirely through ticket sales, financial and in-kind partnerships. We realise that our financial targets for this year are ambitious to say the least. As a not-for-profit volunteer-led and organised community project, we try to mitigate these financial costs through in-kind donations. Every donation of goods or services helps reduce the financial burden of the series.

For example: Lincoln Minster School donated the use of the Harper Building on their Senior School Campus to enable us to run our TEDxAdventure activities for TEDxBrayford Pool Youth 2022. Their amazing in-kind donation, equivalent to £1,000.00, helped dramatically reduce our venue costs and overall financial target. 

We seek to develop as meaningful a relationship with our in-kind partners as we do with our financial partners. Ultimately, creating the TEDxBrayford Pool environment is about more than just numbers. Whether it’s goods and services donated for free or reduced rates, every little bit helps to build this incredible community of ideas worth spreading.  

Unlocking stretch target

partner benefits

Some 2023 partnership benefits will be locked until we achieve our stretch goals. We want you to advocate to others to unlock these.

With an increasing global focus on TEDxBrayford Pool following our success in 2022 and increased venue and production costs, we’ve made the conscious decision to focus our core budget on creating the best possible legacy outputs for our speaker, performer and partners. We realise that the better the production quality, the more people will engage with those ideas from our stage and your brand.

As a result, we’ve chosen to lock certain partner package benefits into our stretch budget goal.  This is to encourage partners to advocate for TEDxBrayford Pool with other potential partners; as we continue to build this incredible community of thinkers and doers within Lincoln, we need to bring more people to the table in order to make this series of events as sustainable as possible.  

Whilst we are confident that we can achieve our full budget this gives us a failsafe just in case and allows us to make sure that no matter what, we’re showcasing Lincoln and Lincolnshire in the best possible light.
