(*You do not necessarily have to live in Prince George's County to be selected, but we do want a few of our speakers to live in the county.)
*(Speakers will be given access to their individual videotaped talks after the event and you will be able to share it as often as you like. The more you share it, the more it may get in front of those who may ultimately want to connect with you to do future collaborations with you in the future. TED Talks are very powerful indeed. This is why we want to make sure only the right individuals are part of this very exclusive and important event.
(You can always sell more if you we have any available, but to make sure that this event is infused with the right, like-minded individuals, we want our speakers to make sure they too are putting people in the room that will be interested in these thought-provoking talks. Tickets will be sold for $99 and will include snacks and lunch as well as we only have 100 tickets available. Ticket sales will go to make sure all event costs are covered along with sponsors.)
Thank you for your candid responses. We will be going through all speaker applications on February 22nd and will make a decision on our speakers by mid March.
Thank you again for taking the time to apply and we look forward to working with you.
