TEDxSydney 2017 – Spread The Word

For TEDxSydney team members and volunteers.

Can you help us to promote TEDxSydney?

We would love for you to help us to promote TEDxSydney, and we’ve put together notes and resources that hopefully you can use to spread the word about TEDxSydney with your friends, colleagues, and networks.


Here are some resources you can use to promote TEDxSydney through your social media channels. The more channels the better – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat … feel free to use them all!  There is some suggested copy below, but feel free to re-edit into your own words.

Long Copy: TEDxSydney is part of the global TED network, and is designed to take Australian ideas to the rest of the world via the well-loved TED Talks format. This year’s flagship event takes place on 16 June at ICC Sydney and features speakers from a wide range of disciplines – technology, science, design, education, business, art, health, law, politics, entertainment, and more.  In addition to the Talks program, there’s also special live music performances and screenings of original short films. Plus, you’ll also have the opportunity to exchange ideas, foster friendships and kickstart collaborations with the TEDxSydney community.  More info at https://tedxsydney.com/2017 

Images: We have a great library of photos to share, which you can use to illustrate and accompany your social posts.  We also have a few ready-made Instagram promo tiles. Click here to view our shareable image library.


Do you work for an organisation or business that might also be interested in promoting TEDxSydney to its own network?  

Or maybe their area of interest dovetails with the topics of our speakers? This year’s areas of expertise include (but are not limited to) broad topics such as health, science, tech, environment, design, entertainment; and – more particularly – to drug addiction, psychology, comedy, indigenous activism, eating disorders, Australian history, accessible design, sustainable fishing, body image.  And this is just the top of the iceberg.

Read the speakers’ short bios here to see if there is any crossover with the work or your business or organisation. 

No matter how tangential, let me know (stuart@tedxsydney.com) if you think there’s an opportunity to promote a speaker through your business or organisation, and we can work with you to find the right content and messaging to share.  If there’s no link, no matter how tangential, perhaps your business or organisation may simply help us to share some of the general links and resources above?

Thanks for your help in promoting this year’s event – please get in touch if you have any questions, ideas or opportunities!
