The main difference between TED and TEDx is that TEDx is focused on a local, geographic area. It is a local gathering where TED-like talks and presentations are shared with the community. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.

The most direct way to approach TED is through a nomination, either by someone else or yourself. When you nominate yourself, TED requires a description of your “idea worth spreading” that your talk will focus on and links to videos of your previous speeches or presentations.The best way is to apply with a topic related to the theme of the local TEDx you are aiming for.

In this episode, Elliot and Jose discuss with Becky what it takes to land a TEDx Talk.
