Q: I have a great idea, and my friend has one too. Can I suggest a speaker?
A: If you’d like to suggest a speaker for TEDxSydney, contact us with more information.

Q: I thought TEDx events were nonprofit. Why do I have to pay to secure my place?
The cost of mounting an event of this scale is funded jointly by sales of registrations and contributions by our generous partners. We hope you’ll agree the price is great value considering the fully-catered day of world-class speakers and performers that make up TEDxSydney. Concessional prices are available for holders of valid concession passes.


Q: What does it mean if I’m a TEDxSydney ‘Member’?
This means you’re part of our TEDxSydney online community. Only Members can attend TEDxSydney events, but membership is free and open to anyone. As a member, you’ll receive email alerts with information relating to TEDxSydney and details of coming events. You have a profile page and an optional profile photo so other members of the online community can learn who you are and what interests you.

Q: How do I change (or delete) my TEDxSydney website account?
You need to log in, then you can edit or hide your profile, switch subscriptions on and off, update your photo etc. This is where you can delete your profile if you need to.

Q: I would like to get involved. Do you need any volunteers?

A: We certainly do! To help us pull off another successful event this year, we’re looking for talent to volunteer either on the event day or on an ongoing capacity as a skilled volunteer.
