Thinkers. Doers. Idea-generators.

TEDxKanke is all about ideas worth spreading.

Our speakers are a passionate group of communicators, educators and change-makers who bring ideas to life, make them memorable, and motivate others to take action. We carefully curate the topics and speakers for each event to ensure the most exciting and innovative ideas are featured on our stage and beyond.

Sharing your idea with us.

Thinkers. Doers. Idea-generators. These are the speakers who have delivered a talk featured on TEDxKanke Kanke.com. The talk was given at an official TEDxKanke Kanke event, these are the people who brought it to life.

If you’re thinking of submitting an idea to us in future, the information below will help you prepare.

Specifically we are interested in proposals related to:

  • Climate change and environmental science
  • Advances and new discoveries in health, epidemiology and genomics
  • Design and engineering for social change
  • Global empowerment of women and girls
  • LGBTQI+ rights
  • Research and progress in gender equality
  • Inclusive technology
  • Innovative architecture
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Ethics in artificial intelligence
  • Art and activism
  • Ground-breaking and new interdisciplinary collaboration

Our stage is not for you if you’re a motivational or inspirational speaker, want to speak about a specific product, business or brand, or want to share your personal story.

We receive a large number of speaking enquiries, and each one needs to be reviewed and considered carefully according to the specific event we’re working on. As TEDxKanke Kanke is managed by a team of volunteers, it’s not possible to reply to all enquiries individually, but we’ll be sure to contact you if we want to find out more about your idea or take your proposal to the next step.

Please don’t feel disheartened if your proposal isn’t right for us – we can only feature a small selection and it doesn’t mean you don’t have a great idea! With your permission, we’ll keep your application to consider for the future.
