TEDxChelmsford is an independently organised event licensed from TED by Chelmsford based Mark Davies and organised by the TEDxChelmsford team. If you would like to become involved in organising the event then please feel free to contact us and tell us how you can help and what you love about TED and TEDx. email IWantToHelp@Tedxchelmsford.com
The date of the next TEDxChelmsford event will be May 9th 2019 and will be held at the New Hall School Boreham, Chelmsford. We are working hard to build the team, work with and develop partners and sponsors and in finding amazing ideas from great speakers to share with everyone in Chelmsford. If you know a great idea that needs to get heard then please let us know or get the person with the idea to contact us at email@example.com. WE already have some great talks lined up and speakers will be revealed over the next few weeks.
The TEDxChelmsford mission, like the TED mission, is to propagate Ideas Worth Spreading; to inform and inspire. Our specific vision for TEDxChelmsford is to make it the leading annual platform for the propagation of great ideas, storytelling, creativity and actionable innovation to the rest of the Essex and the East of England; to create and foster a sense of community amongst the people and organisations who have gathered (and continue to gather) around this event; to provide a cultural focus and impetus for conversation and debate.
David joined the TEDxChelmsford team for its inaugural year, and keeps coming back for more - he either loves it, or doesn't know when to quit..

TED is a US based not-for-profit enterprise devoted to the propagation of Ideas Worth Spreading. TED started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment & Design. Started as a four-day conference in California 28 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende, Elon Musk and former UK prime minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver British Columbia, Canada.
TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, the recently launched TED-Ed platform for students and educators, the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide, and TEDBooks, short e-books by speakers that elaborate on a single idea originally presented on TED's stage. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organised events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

We are not looking for speakers, we are looking for IDEAS and as ideas can't speak on their own we are also looking for someone to share them.
A TEDx talk is not a rework or rehash of a previously presented speech or keynote, it is an idea that is new or challenging and needs to be heard. There are few subjects that a TEDx would not like to hear about so ideas should tend to be outside of personal development or spiritual themes but please feel to contact us to discuss the idea.
The event is being held on May 9th at New Hall SChool Boreham, Chelmsford and will be an all day event so the speaker will need to be available for that day. As we had to postpone last years event so we are sticking with the theme of Consequences and the talk needs to somehow link to that theme. Please consider however that the theme is only loosely linked to the talk and should not be the sole focus. I always consider that the theme is a thin thread of cotton that links all the days talks and not a main overiding subject.
Please make sure you give us enough detail in the application to allow us to FULLY understand the idea . Lack of information will make the selection process more difficult and could potentially rule you out some ideas from selection. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
All press requests should be sent to Mark Davies (email@example.com). Mark Davies is the official spokesperson for TEDxChelmsford. Please note that TEDx event organizers are not able to speak for the TED Conference

While we appreciate any coverage, we kindly ask that all journalists and/or bloggers be respectful of the difference between the TED and TEDx brands.
The ‘x’ in ‘TEDx’ stands for “independently organized events.” Any headline or text which implies “TED” is coming to Chelmsford is misleading.
