If you’ve ever watched a TED talk online the you know how inspirational they are. Have you ever thought: ‘I have a great idea I’d like to share’? Well now you have a chance to take your place on a global stage and do your very own talk at this year’s TEDxLeamingtonSpa event.

The event organisers are inviting people to apply until 22nd July and this year’s theme is ‘Rip up the Rulebook’ and the event itself will take place on Saturday 19th November at the Royal Pump Rooms.

“We chose the theme this year because we want to challenge convention and showcase the people, ideas and projects that disrupt thinking and inspire action,” said event organiser Kimberley Owen.

The team is searching for a range of speakers and performers for the event. Last year’s event sold out in 73 minutes and this year’s event will hopefully push the boundaries even further.

“We aren’t simply looking for professional speakers – we want to use our event to shine a light on the projects and people that normally don’t get to share their inspirational stories,” adds co-organiser Imogen Pierce.

The team is also looking for the support of local businesses to make this year’s event bigger than ever – get in touch with the team by emailing info@tedxleamingtonspa.com for more information.
