TedXObserver - For TED lovers in London, England
I recently gave a TedX talk here in Victoria, Canada. It was on my bucket list of things to do before I die, and while I am a teacher who is used to giving talks in front of large audiences, I was still ridiculously nervous. I had only 8 minutes to capture the attention of the audience, convey the message and try not to fall off the stage.
Well, luckily - I survived! And now my dream is to get to do a TED talk in the annual conference. That would be absolutely incredible and of course, nerve-wracking!
TEDX conferences are independently organized local events - in the spirit of TED, but organized locally. There are literally thousands of these events around the world.
For those of you in London, England I highly recommend signing up for the TEDxObserver conference which will happen in March 2012. It's between 55 and 65 pounds to attend a full day of speeches, and trust me - you won't be disapointed. They just started selling tickets yesterday, and I know they will sell out. Get in there before they do, and maybe you'll start dreaming of your own TEDx or TED talk one day.
