We're always looking for new voices and new ideas to add to the TED community. Through our TED Talks, Fellowship, TED-Ed lessons, and podcasts, we take those great ideas and help them grow — but they start with your suggestions. See all the ways to let us know about the most exciting, talented people in your network.
Each TED conference features more than 50 of the world's most innovative and influential speakers. At TED, we search year-round for presenters who will inform and inspire, surprise and delight. If you know someone who belongs on the TED stage, or if you belong there yourself, we want to hear from you! Please use our speaker recommendation form to tell us why this person would be well-suited to speak at TED. More about speaking at TED
Are you a changemaker with an ambitious idea? The Audacious Project could help your work achieve far-reaching social impact. TED’s ambitious collaborative funding initiative is looking for world-changing ideas to catalyze to grand scale. If you and your organization have a proven track record and the potential to deliver on a bold vision, The Audacious Project could be for you.
Do you have a meaningful story from your life that you can’t tell anyone — perhaps because it affects someone you love, your career or your role in a community? Consider applying for our new audio series, Sincerely, X. We’re looking to open and expand the world of spellbinding, perspective-shifting TED Talks through the intimacy of personal, anonymous stories.
We invite you to use this submission form to share your story, and emphasize why anonymity is crucial in its telling.
