Speakers of TEDxDresden 2019

Here we will announce the 12 speakers of the TEDxDresden 2019. The application phase is over - try again next year!

Our speaker Anthony Hyman had to cancel his talk for personal reasons. We wish him and his family all the best.

Visionary thinking

Our speakers inspire the audience to perceive the future as something individual yet shared, something challenging yet definitely worth trying. Each will introduce a personal aspect on how to take the opportunity.

Skilled speakers

Why are TED talks so popular?
It's an open secret: Talks take usually 6 to 18 minutes and bring an idea captivatingly to the point. TEDxDresden assists their speakers by rhetoric training and repeated rehearsing to work out the essence of their vision.

Local community

One aim is to promote speakers from Dresden and Saxony as well. Thereby we increase awareness for local ideas and offer a platform for the development of our city.

Language of talks

Depending on the preferences of the speakers talks will be either in German or English. Our aim is to provide a balanced selection that acknowledges the language skills of our audience.
