Speaker Nominations

At TEDxNashville, we search year-round for speakers who will inform and inspire, surprise and delight. Our presenters run companies, invent world-changing devices, transform their communities, and create ground-breaking media. We seek out emerging artists, scientists and thinkers, movers and shakers, and introduce them to TED and TEDx fans before they hit the mainstream.

TEDxNashville isn’t a typical conference. Our audience has high expectations and so our speaker team works with our speakers well in advance of the conference to help shape a successful TED-style presentation. We celebrate this collaborative process as the most successful way to introduce both new and seasoned public speakers to the TED communication style.

If you think you’ve got what it takes and you have an IDEA WORTH SPREADING or you would like to nominate someone else fill out our application and include a video submission below.

Please note, due to the high volume of submissions we receive, our volunteer speakers committee is unable to respond to every submissions individually. If you have been selected for consideration, our speaker chair will be in touch with you directly.
