Every speaker has imagined giving a TED talk - being up on one of the world’s biggest stages and sharing your story with a global audience. The TED stage has been a life-changing experience for many and introduced us to inspiring speakers including Brene Brown, Simon Sinek, and Celeste Headlee to name a few.

This year TED is hosting two Global Idea Searches with a mission to hear BIG, BOLD IDEAS from every corner of the globe. They are looking for people who can offer new, unique insights & fresh ways of thinking to a global audience. If you have a story that you believe is worthy of the TED stage, this is your opportunity to audition and make your dream come true.

 We’re partnering with Professional TEDx curator and speakers’ coach Winston Liew, to present the all-new TEDWorthy Talks Development Program, our first Advanced Speaker Training Program. This original series includes a host of training sessions designed to give you a deeper understanding of what it takes to give your talk that TED-style edge, so you'll have the confidence (and a professionally filmed video!) to help your audition stand out.
