Speaker nomination form
What is TEDxGEM?
In order to spread new ideas, TED created a new program in 2009 labelled TEDx. TEDx is a program gathering independently organized
conferences aiming to share local people’s ideas thanks to a similar format. Our event is named TEDxGEM and will represent one of the most
prestigious business schools in France, Grenoble Ecole de Management
On D-day, several speakers will spread their personal idea in front an
audience in addition to a projection of minimum 2 TED conferences in order to build intellectual emulation. TED gave us the right to build a TEDx
event by attributing us a TEDx license back in march 2018. As of that
date, we are an independently organized TED but still under a degree of
TED control. Indeed, specific rules need to be respected before, during
and after the event (speakers, communication…).
We are looking for speakers capable of showcasing new, original
and innovative ideas!
Key words related to our theme:
Questioning the Status quo
Exploration To surpass
The unknown Rupture
Date of the event: 3rd of October 2018
Grenoble’s WTC, where the event will take place.
We are looking for: never-before-seen presentations, from people
who have changed the world in terms of Technology, Entertainment,
Our audience is not interested in:advice or “coaching” about how to
live differently, causes or charities looking for support, professional
or semi-pro “public speakers” who have given the same talk many
times, or personal observations from an individual who is not famous.
Our audience attends to meet and learn directly from inventors,designers and creators. We are conscious that preparing a TEDx talk
requires a big amount of time and effort and that’s why we will hire a
personal coach specialized in the TEDx format and gather the best
conditions possible to assure the quality of the event.

application means you are fully committed to our project!
