We're proud to launch this year's TEDxBrayfordPool theme and open speaker applications.
Fear is the oldest of human emotions; it allowed us to evolve into the planet’s dominant species and survive when predators were a genuine threat. Now, in the modern world, is there still a place for fear? We fear failure, the unknown, the other and even ourselves. Without help, our fears spiral and overwhelm.
Now imagine a world free from fear. What could we accomplish if we fear less?
Let’s fail fast, dream big and make the world a better place. Now is the time to renounce fear and be unstoppable!
This year's event will be hosted by TEDxBrayfordPool alumni and speaker coach Richard Askam. Who, along with Katy Taylor, Chris Konrath and Andy Farenden will be supporting successful applicants as the hone their ideas into TEDx talks.
We are particularly interested in applicants who can have something that’s new and surprising; an idea or invention that your audience has never heard about, or have a great idea (that your audience has maybe already heard) with a compelling new argument behind it that challenges beliefs and perspectives. In other words, ideas that aren't just a story or a list of facts. A good idea takes certain evidence or observations and draws a larger conclusion.
If you'd like to apply to be a speaker or performer at this year's conference on Saturday 30th June visit the TEDxBrayfordPool page.
