Nominate a speaker by October 30, 2019!

TEDx is a global program featuring local, self-organized events that are devoted to ideas worth spreading. Through TEDxCentennialCollegeToronto, our goal is to bring together bright minds and dynamic speakers to deliver talks on a wide range of topics that foster learning, spark innovation, and provoke conversations that matter.

The theme of this year’s event is On The Verge. We are at a critical moment in time where the ideas we nurture and the decisions we make can have profound impacts on the world. On The Verge invites you to explore the evolving middle ground, which demands the courage to consider ourselves, our relationships, and the places we inhabit as fluid and uncertain…

Think you or somebody you know has an idea worth spreading? Nominate a TEDx speaker below!  Please use the following resources to guide your nomination.

Nominations will be reviewed and assessed by the TEDxCentennialCollegeToronto Leadership team based on the originality and impact of your proposed idea and its relevance to our theme, On The Verge. Only those nominees shortlisted as potential speakers for the event will be contacted for an audition and interview.

We look forward to receiving your nominations!
