Speakers to be Featured on the Global TEDx Platform
TEDxIIT 2017 is calling for speaker nomination
Reach out to your contacts and find someone to nominate you as a TEDxIIT speaker if you are interested in being on the global TEDx platform. The 7th annual TEDxIIT, the longest running independently organized TED event in Chicago, is now calling for speakers. The event will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at IIT Tower Auditorium, located at the main campus of Illinois Institute of Technology, 10 W. 35th Street, Chicago IL 60616. It will be live streaming worldwide.
NSA-IL members who have been featured on TEDxIIT are Col. Jill Morgenthaler, President-Elect Bob Roitblat, Haydn Shaw and Carl Seidman. This is not a typical professional conference. Both the nomination process and rehearsal process are time consuming. “Unlike a keynote, lecture or workshop, the TEDx platform has a different kind of structure and purpose. TEDxIIT is designed to spotlight ideas worth spreading from the local community to the larger global audience as well as engage all who are involved from planning and speaking to attending the event,” Segami remarked.
The theme is “exclamation.” Nomination deadline is Feb 26, 2017. All details pertaining to the TEDxIIT 2017 Speaker Nomination process are at: bit.ly/txi17speakernom
