Nominate a Speaker

In the spirit of progress, innovation and the city that thought it could and did, TEDxUTChattanooga 2014 is asking: "Now what?"

We're looking for potential speakers who are agents of change, whether it be in their respective fields or in their community. We're not interested in hearing from those who are comfortably propped up on the laurels of the past — we are looking for active members of our community who are pushing ever forward — who are asking the question "now what?" and are seeking with every fiber of their souls to find the answer.

Did we just describe you or someone you know?
Then please, fill out this form and let us know. If we didn't, then please attend the event and become inspired!

Speaker nominations will close July 25.

Thank you for your submissions. Nominations are now closed. Make sure to check back for updates as we reveal our TEDxUTChattanooga speakers in the coming weeks.

Speaker nominations are now closed.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUTChattanooga, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUTChattanooga event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
