Hi TEDx'ers


So you want to be a speaker at TEDxCharleston? Awesome! If accepted, you'll join a group of prominent local thought leaders who have graced our stage over the last ten years with Ideas Worth Spreading. So if you have a great idea, fill out the form below and we'll have our TEDx experts review it. As part of the larger TED community, we have certain guidelines our speakers must adhere to (no politics, religion, bad science or divisive thinking!) so please read the Content Guidelines carefully. Any topic that strays beyond these criteria will not be considered. You also must agree to participate in our planning and coaching program leading up to the event which will be held March 29, 2023.


The deadline to apply is October 14, 2022 at midnight. 


Best of luck and drop us a line at tedxcharleston2013@gmail.com if you have any questions.


Insider tip: Have a look at some of these videos on what makes a great TEDx talk Or this one from our own LB Adams. And, check out our web site to see our video archive of previous TEDxCharleston speakers.

Are you willing to work with one of our speaker coaches? We have found that our speakers perform better when working with a speaker coach even if he/she is an experienced speaker. Speaking at a TEDx event is a much different experience than other public speaking forums or public speaking events.
Once coaching starts (about 2-3 months before the event), are you prepared to commit a minimum of 5 hours per week of preparation for the talk?
