We search year-round for presenters who will inform and inspire, surprise and delight. Our presenters have run some of the most admired companies and organizations, invent world-changing devices, and create ground-breaking media. They are trusted voices and convention-breaking mavericks, icons and geniuses. If you know someone who belongs on our roster, or if you belong there yourself, we want to hear from you!

Here are some tips to help you craft the best possible application.

Top Tips for being selected:

  • You don’t have to be a professional speaker to speak at TEDxMileHigh! Give us your best shot at the audition, and if selected, our team will work with you to take your talk to the next level.
  • TEDx talks focus on “ideas worth spreading.” We look for talks that demonstrate new ways of approaching old problems, challenges to the status quo, fascinating research, innovative technology and design, and jaw-dropping performances. Many of the nominations we receive are lectures, personal stories, and motivational talks. These types of talks, while meaningful, differ from our focus for TEDxMileHigh as described above.

Consider these questions when you fill out your application:

  • What is the #1 thing you want the audience to take away from your talk?
  • What makes this idea new, innovative, or important?
  • What makes you uniquely qualified to share this idea?
