The University of Luxembourg will host its first TEDx event in September 2018. The first step is to put in place a dedicated and competent organizing team from the University. Read on to see who we need and what is expected.
The first ever TEDx event organized at and by the University of Luxembourg is scheduled for September 2018. In the spirit of TED’s mission, “Ideas Worth Spreading”, a TEDx event brings together outstanding speakers with a passion for sharing their thoughts and ideas on a diverse range of topics.
The license holder for TEDxUniversityOfLuxembourg, Prof. Jan Lagerwall at the Physics and Materials Science Research Unit, is now setting up the organizing team. Persons on the team will, in addition to deciding on the speaker line-up, be in charge of tasks such as web site and social media management, sponsor recruitment, audio/video recording, stage design and lighting, graphical design, ticketing and sales, speaker support, artist performances, administration/finance and catering.
Would you like to be part of the organizing team for this extraordinary event, bringing exceptional speakers on stage and curating a day of sharing ideas and inspiration with fellow UL staff, students as well as the general public? Do you have experience and interests that you would like to put to use for making this event successful? Then please contact Jan at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell who you are, why TEDxUniversityOfLuxembourg is an event that you consider worth investing many hours over several months, and which 2-3 of the above mentioned tasks would interest you the most. Staff and students of the University of Luxembourg can apply until 15 January.
Please note that organisers never speak themselves at a TEDx event.
