INSPIRE WITH YOUR IDEA
Are you passionate about an idea? Have you participated in any work you found impactful? Are you ready to share your idea?
Below is our suggest a speaker form. You may nominate yourself, a friend/colleague/professor, or someone you don't know who you feel would be a great speaker.
Any and all suggestions are appreciated and will be reviewed.
Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, we will only be able to contact those invited to further explore their talk idea with our Speakers and Programming team.

What better way to think about your own ideas than hearing others? We've featured a couple here for you to get started.
Our Speakers and Programming team works around the year reviewing Suggest a Speaker form submissions. The team works with selected speakers on their talk drafts and helps refine their great idea.
We have a couple of submission criteria:
Must be familiar with TED Talks and TEDxCUNY;
Cannot pitch a talk with a political or religious agenda;
Cannot sell or otherwise promote a company/brand/product;
Must present scientifically accurate ideas;
Cannot be a professional/recurring speaker.
