TEDx Style Presentations – International Conference


TEDx Presentations Sponsored by

A big highlight from our 2016 International Conference was the TEDx style presentations on the final day, so we are offering this again.

This is a unique opportunity for members to develop their presentations skills whilst inspiring other conference attendees.

If you would like to be considered for this program, simply email Neil McWhannell your details and a short synopsis of what you would like to speak about by Friday 13 July.


We are seeking 5 people who wish to present a 5-10 min TEDx style talk.

Each of these short talks is designed to be provocative, interesting and get you thinking differently about how we approach our day to day work. The session with be energetic, enlightening and hopefully a bit of fun too as we celebrate clever people doing interesting things.

Online professional training will be provided by Fraser Orford who is a producer and TEDx Curator. For any questions, contact Neil McWhannell CEO and Conference Chair.
