SPEAKERS FOR TEDxTURKU ARE CHOSEN BASED ON THE AUDITIONS

This year, TEDxTurku received a record number of speaker applications. The applications were filled with interesting ideas, viewpoints, and thoughts about science, the arts, and technology. After a difficult selection process, the panel decided to extend an invitation to auditions to 40 candidates from the total of 70 applicants.

 

FIRST TWO AUDITIONS WERE A SUCCESS

In the first audition on 17 March, there was a possibility for audience-speaker dialogue. The speakers received a lot of positive feedback. In the second audition on 20 March, the number of speaker candidates was considerably higher than in the first event, so further inquiries and discussions between the audience and the speakers had to be held during the breaks. The audience and the speakers enjoyed both events.
