TEDxCanberra is organised by a volunteer team with the generous assistance of partners in the corporate and public sectors.
Putting TEDxCanberra together takes over 3000 volunteer hours every year. Our team, shown below, donate their time and effort to make TEDxCanberra the amazing event it is.
I'm part of the Presenter Team and provide an additional set of hands and ears. This sometimes means meeting potential presenters in cafes and bars and then listening to them run through their talks in their lounge rooms. Particularly curious, I love finding ideas worth spreading in the field, then helping to bring them to the TEDx stage.
I'm our performance curator. That means that I have searched high and low in Canberra to find the best acts for your viewing and listening pleasure.
I am on the Community Manager team for TEDxCanberra. I love bringing people together to share ideas, connections and passions.
I’m on the Communications Team for TEDxCanberra. I’m passionate about my city and I want to help change the rhetoric around "boring old Canberra" because that’s not who we are. We’re a strong, creative and brilliant city with lots to offer the world!
I'm super excited to be part of the TEDxCanberra team this year! I'm a Year 11 student at Narrabundah College and passionate about innovation and education! I'll be bringing that passion to help put on a captivating and enriching show with something to offer for everyone.
I'm responsible for ensuring waste at our events, and during our working year are kept to a minimum. In 2016, we want to be zero-waste or better. I’m an environmental management graduate student at ANU with a passion for discovering and implementing sustainable solutions.
I'm a communications professional with a passion for food, travel, wellness and inspiring others. As Food Experience Manager of TEDxCanberra 2016 and Founding Editor of Eat Canberra I'll create a unique food experience by showcasing the best of what's on offer in the Canberra region.
I am someone who is passionate about food and love to experience flavours.
I am really excited to be a part of TEDxCanberra as a Food Experience Manager so I can meet interesting people and introduce them to hearty, nourishing, soulful food that their mind and body will love.
Peace-loving, travel enthusiast and food explorer. I like marinating in ideas and ambient music. Other passions include cloud-spotting, film festivals and live music. Hello!
I'm responsible for ensuring your on the day experience runs smoothly so that you can stay curious. I'll be the energetic and extroverted person you meet on the day who will want to discuss what your signature dish is, what Canberra hikes you've done lately, the best coffee brew in Canberra, and what made you come to TEDxCanberra. Welcome!
Although I have worn many hats in the past, this year I will be helping out with Access and Inclusion, to ensure that every person has the opportunity to be a part of the TEDxCanberra community and the events that I love so much.
I'm our Pastoral Care Manager – that means I makes sure all the crew and participants are happy and healthy. Say hello, I love to chat.
