From April to June 2012, TED held public auditions in 14 cities on six continents seeking to uncover new talents, voices and ideas the world needs to hear. The TED Worldwide Talent Search in partnership with TEDxSydney came to Carriageworks Eveleigh on 27 May 2012 (the day after TEDxSydney 2012). The live audition was hosted by TED Curator Chris Anderson,TED Content Director Kelly Stoetzel and TEDxSydney Licensee, Remo Giuffré … along with other members of theTEDxSydney organising team.
The entire TED community had a chance to vote on the most promising presenters; and many were invited to be speakers at TED2013. Half of our program will be chosen this way. Congratulations to Leyla Acaroglu and Adam Spencer … both of whom get to talk at TED2013. That programme HERE.
