One of the most valuable ways to master your skills as a TEDx organizer is by learning from other organizers in the community. We’ve learned at TED that organizers can be each other’s best mentors, teachers, and advocates.
If you want to connect with and learn from (or teach) other organizers in person, check out our regional workshops. These meetings give organizers from the same region the chance to meet face-to-face to collaborate and share each other’s best practices.
In these groups, organizers from specific regions or TEDx event types can connect with each other online. Using Facebook and Google groups, the online communities are an immediate way to connect with like-minded organizers.
If you’re looking for online advice from veteran TEDx organizers, this is the place to be. Through coordinated sessions on Google+, organizers share tips around organizing an event, like video and production, or how to create a sponsor package.
In the interest of “files worth sharing,” the TEDx Wiki allows organizers to upload and download templates, best practices, and other resources with each other around organizing a TEDx event.
TEDx Ambassadors play a special role in the global TEDx community by serving as regional leaders for TED and TEDx. Ambassadors support and protect their region’s community, vision, and leadership.
