TEDxWarrnambool organiser Helen Sheedy says that the event will provide a platform for Warrnambool speakers to reach a global audience.
“This is an amazing opportunity to tell the stories of our region to potentially millions of people around the globe,”
“Warrnambool will be the first regional city in Victoria and just the second in Australia given a licence to stage a TEDx event."
“TEDxWarrnambool will be a place in our community that inspires people to change their lives, futures and, ultimately, the world.”
Sheedy says that instead of an overarching theme for the talks, it was decided to keep the parameters broad to showcase the diversity and history that the south west region provides.
“If you an idea that is worth sharing, passionate about and you want to make a local and global impact, we want to hear from you.”
The search is now on for up to five presenters who will speak for up to 15 minutes each.
Applications to speak at the event are now open. They can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
