Since November, several people have registered their interest in speaking at TEDxHastingsSt this year, but we are still looking for more if you or someone you know might be interested. We will also remember you for next year.
Are you ready to get tickets? We are anxious to release them. Everyone we have spoken to is excited, and we feel the same way. It is almost time to tell you who the speakers are, but you’ll have to wait a couple more weeks. We still have a few things to wrap up before we tell you.
What we can tell you is that we have combed through dozens of applications and narrowed the speaker list to just 8 people. These 8 people will present 8 ideas that will inspire Hawke’s Bay and the world. We are coaching each speaker, and each talk will be sharpened for the event.
This year’s event will be similar to last year, but we are taking on board all the feedback we received last year. So, if you gave us your opinion, thank you! You are already helping make the 2019 event spectacular. For instance, we are starting the event later in the day to allow parents time to take their kids to sport. We are completely avoiding school holidays, and we have invited a professional MC who can devote his entire day just to MCing our event.
Who is the MC? He’s something of a celebrity in the events market around here. If you have never heard of him, you should attend the event and see what all the fuss is about. His name is David Todd and you can find out more about him here, https://www.toddytalks.com/.
Don’t forget! Save the date, Saturday 10 August 2019 1:00-6:00 in the afternoon.
