PMI 2020 Ted Talks: You?
After a bit of hemming and hawing, I finally relented and submitted my application for Ted Talk speaker for this year's PMI World Congress. Have you considered this opportunity? The deadline is looming. Don't let the chance of a lifetime pass you by.

That's great, Stéphane. I'll leave these types of speeches and talks to the professionals :)
But seriously. That's amazing. I wish you the best of luck. I believe we have a few other members here with serious aspirations to also throw their hat in the ring - Lori, Mayte, Rami, Kiron?

Thanks, Andrew, for your support. I would encourage to consider putting your name forward if you have an interesting idea. You will get a lot of help from the TED Talks team to prepare yourself. You'd be amazed at how few "professionals" are selected for TED Talks.

At least at local TEDx events, we have a NDA, where the selected speakers can't post about their speech or selection in their social media or networks until the line up is announced... I will assume that the big TED will do the same, so... I wish all the aspirants to the red dot good luck and hope that you are selected and enjoy the process!

Andrew, they aren't looking for professionals (as you can see on the application form)... maybe you should think about it :)
That's good.
Thank you for sharing
Great Stéphane, so we should be able to watch you on TED. I was tempted but didn't submit.

It's not a given that I will be one of the 15 individuals chosen out of half a million members. (That's way less than 3σ!)

If you have something interesting to present, you should reconsider, Vincent.

Why 3?, do we know the number of applications.

Exactly 3σ would be approximately 27 out of 10,000 application. The 15 chosen would be out of 5,000 applications. I'm not convinced that only 1% of members will be applying.

The deadline has been extended into March. This is your chance to put yourself on the world stage.
