We believe in amplifying unheard voices while having interactions with authenticity and soul. We strive to impact participant and community conversations by engaging with a diverse representation of team members, speakers and ideas. TEDxDesMoines is about our community and not anyone’s self-promotion. We invite speakers from all backgrounds to share ideas worth spreading.
Do you have an idea that our community should learn more about? Have you had the chance to share your idea with a wider audience? If you are from the Greater Des Moines area, consider applying to become a speaker. Tell us how you see the world.
Whether you are an experienced speaker, or this will be your first time in front of an audience, all selected TEDxDesMoines speakers must commit to a speaker coaching program. The speaker coaching program will require a minimum commitment of 10 hours per month, for 4 months, to gain confidence, learn new skills, sharpen old ones, develop storytelling strategies, and achieve excellence in performance. Our coaches and curriculum will guide you through the process of bringing your idea worth spreading to life.
