Hi <<First Name>>

We've got lots of exciting news in this email all about TEDxNorwichED 2017: Inspiring Generations!  

Coming up in this email:-

Launching TEDxNorwichED 17

Our brand new website.

Speaker applications- NOW OPEN!

Partners wanted!

Launching TEDxNorwichED 17

Today, we are excited to be officially launching TEDxNorwichED 2017: Inspiring Generations.

We had a fantastic time Thinking Differently in 2016, and, due to popular demand, are excited to be re-licenced and back with TEDxNorwichED 17: Inspiring Generations.   

SAVE THE DATE!   Inspiring Generations is on Saturday 18th March 2017, at The Space, Norwich.

Given the ever changing society, many would agree it is time for us to consider how we ensure we inspire everyone- from children to pensioners – about learning, education and even life in general! It is through having inspiring people from all generations that we, as a human race, can continue to develop and thrive.

Together, we will explore ways in which we can inspire- about learning, about skills and about life.   Our theme is broad; the conversations will be exciting and engaging, and the impact will be far-reaching.    

So, will you be part of our inspiring journey?

Our new website.

To coincide with the official launch of TEDxNorwichED 17: Inspiring Generations we are thrilled to be able to unveil our brand new website.

Why not check it out at www.tedxnorwiched.com ?  You'll find out all you need to know about 2017, be able to re-live 2016  and learn more about the volunteer team behind TEDxNorwichED.

Speak at TEDxNorwichED 2017

Applications to speak at TEDxNorwichED: Inspiring Generations are NOW OPEN.

You can find out more, and download an application pack and form on the 'SPEAK" section of our website.

Applications are open to anyone – from the unknown to the famous – you do not have had to have talked before to apply – but, obviously, we do ask that you are confident that you can present a TED-style talk!

We want to hear your ideas worth sharing about how we can inspire everyone. 

Our ‘Inspiring Generations’ theme is purposefully broad – anything that can be linked back to the theme of inspiring people goes. It could be about inspiring people about something (exercise, mental health, maths, English, etc.), inspiring change in communities, about learning (as adults or children), about changes to our education system, or many more things- it up to you!  

Just like for our 2016 event, we do expect a high number of applications- so please be sure to check out our speaker information pack for our top tips on how to put together your talk idea and application.

 Click here to find out more!

The application window closes at 9 am on Tuesday 25th October - so you don't have long!

Please do email us if you have any questions before applying- we are more than happy to help.
