Speak­ing at TEDx­Can­ber­ra Con­fer­ences

Speaker nominations for 2018 are now closed.

You can still nominate yourself or someone else to be considered for future events.

Each TEDx­Can­ber­ra event fea­tures a carefully curated selection of the region’s most innov­at­ive and inspiring ideas.

If you know someone with an idea that belongs on the TEDx­Can­ber­ra stage, or if you have an idea yourself, we want to hear from you. Submit a short email outlining who you are nominating, how we can get in touch with them, and giving an overview of the idea.

Remember, the key criterion is that you have an idea worth spreading.

TEDxCanberra Spotlight

In this moving and often funny talk from TEDxCanberra 2017, Wayne Herbert challenges some common myths about disability and sexuality. He explores the power of social labels and how they can affect one’s life in both positive and negative ways. Wayne knows there is much work to be done to improve the employment of people with disability. He knows all too well that as a country, Australia cannot let the skills and talents of people with disability go to waste. Wayne has a unique, humorous, thought-provoking, and challenging insight into the issues facing people with disability. He too has a disability, but is well-known for forgetting about it. ‘Is it wrong that I forget I have a disability? I just get on with things; I’ve got shit to do.’
