TEDx­Can­ber­ra needs a new Exec­ut­ive Pro­du­cer – is it you?

Naomi Wynn by Electric Images on FlickrTEDx­Can­ber­ra itself is just one day. Months and months of pre­par­a­tion go into put­ting that day on, and one of the key parts of mak­ing that hap­pen is our Exec­ut­ive Pro­du­cer.

Our first EPClare Con­roy, stepped back this year to start a fam­ily, and she and her hus­band, Jason (our web guy), wel­comed Ella Anne earli­er this year.

Step­ping into the breach in 2013 was Naomi Wynn, who’s been an amaz­ing bundle of energy and brought the neces­sary lead­er­ship nous, calm, and “ducks in a row” man­age­ment to the role. But life goes on, and Naomi is mov­ing to Japan to take up a new role and step her career for­ward.

If you take on the role of EP, you’ll be play­ing a major lead­er­ship role in one of Canberra’s best com­munity-driv­en, volun­teer-run events. It requires a very spe­cial per­son who can man­age a crazily diverse team of people, can stay calm in the face of com­pet­ing, and some­times weird, demands, and who deeply under­stands the TEDx­Can­ber­ra vis­ion for the event, it’s com­munity and what it all means.

More form­ally, the TEDx­Can­ber­ra Exec­ut­ive Pro­du­cer does the fol­low­ing things and needs the skills lis­ted:

  • be great at pro­ject and people man­age­ment, mak­ing sure the wide vari­ety of what needs to get done, gets done
  • be bet­ter at being an inspir­a­tion­al lead­er, and the calm in the eye of the storm
  • be able to be a part of the team as the “face of TEDx­Can­ber­ra”, along­side our licensee, Steve Collins

This is a demand­ing, volun­teer, role requir­ing sev­er­al hours a week, with increased demand around TEDx­Can­ber­ra events.

If you need to know more, you can read a more form­al pos­i­tion descrip­tion.
