Great ideas emerge all around us, all the time.

If you’d like to suggest a speaker (whether that’s you or someone else) with a great idea for TEDxPlano outside of our official speaker application period, please send us a note.

What types of ideas make for a good Talk? We’re looking for ideas:

  • on any topic or subject matter.
  • that can be realized in some way.
  • that conform to TED’s content rules.
  • that demonstrate original thinking.

We select speakers approximately three to five months before the upcoming TEDxPlano event. Our curatorial team receives hundreds of ideas every year, so we are not able to reply to each submission. Selected speakers will be contacted directly. Submitting an idea does not guarantee future selection as a TEDxPlano speaker.

Ready to submit your idea? We’re listening.
