TEDxPitsmoor is about local Pitsmoor people, unused to public speaking, who want to say something that is interesting or entertaining, or both (although an interesting speaker who wants to come and join us from another part of Sheffield would also be welcome). We would really feel like we have succeeded if, in the process, speakers gain new skills and the confidence to speak. We are looking for balanced views that are powerfully made. We also want to make time for tea, lots of cake and local people to meet up. It is about Pitsmoor having a voice.

We have some excellent potential speakers for this year’s event who are starting to plan and rehearse their talks. The brilliant speakers from last year have been helping with the organisation and mentoring speakers.

Martin has secured a pro film crew for the videos, the event is free, and we have no sponsor, just local good will.
