TEDx talks return to Pitsmoor

"Last year was brilliant, so let's do it again"

After the success of the independent TEDxPitsmoor 2015, the organisers want to do it again. NEW talks. NEW ideas and visions. MORE delicious cake. Would you be interested in doing a TEDxPitsmoor talk? Did you take part last year and could contribute your skills and knowledge to help run this years event?

Please come to a meeting on Friday 5th February 6-8pm at Christchurch on Pitsmoor Road, S3 9AQ

This meeting is for NEW potentially interested speakers Also please come along if you would like to help organise TEDxPitsmoor. TEDx needs cake bakers, technical skills, a social media & publicity team, mentors (last years speakers?), stewards.

Initial ideas for 2016 are that we get a completely new batch of speakers with things that they want to say (there are some TED rules you should not promote your business, inflammatory religious or political views and avoid pseudoscience… no talks about rayguns).

Certainly it would be essential to have some talks about Pitsmoor. As last year TED wants to support people to plan and develop TEDx talks learning new skills in the process.

Organiser Martin Currie says… "TEDTalks have of course been going for decades. Some Ted events last a whole weekend, our event will last about as long as a trip to the cinema, though with the price of Cinema tickets being what they are, our free entrance price is hard to beat. We have a wide range of talks, so we're keeping them short. Ten minutes maximum.

As well as talks, we will be showcasing a number of local entertainers, as a bit of variety is always helpful. There will be intermissions, providing the opportunity for tea, cake and the chance to meet and praise, or argue with, the speakers.

“Talks range from the global down to the very local, but all are enthralling. I am very proud of my speakers, most of whom are new to public speaking, and all of whom have an interesting perspective on Pitsmoor and the world.”

“These aren't people peddling politics, selling products, or looking to put something new on their CV, these are people with something to say, taking advantage of the forum we are providing.”
