Register to Speak at TEDxHastingsSt

If you would like to speak at TEDxHastingsSt, please click and register your interest. We will be in touch soon after to let you know what we think. Even if we don’t use your idea immediately, we may want to invite you to register for another event where your idea may be more appropriate.

We are always looking for people interested in sharing their ideas. What kind of ideas? Ideas worth spreading, of course. What does that mean? Usually, we want ideas that are unique, innovative, or novel. Sometimes, we focus more on how the speaker could present a common idea in a fresh, unique way. We’re looking especially for ideas that can be backed up with quantitative research, but we are often interested in ideas that cannot be quantified if they are interesting enough.

TEDxHastingsSt 2019 happened on 10 August successfully with 6 speakers and one dance company,

We are now looking for speakers for 2020.

Are you doing something different? Do you want to spread your idea, invention, creation with Hawke’s Bay and the world?
