Organising a TEDx event is one of the most challenging and rewarding things I have ever done. The last 12 months has taught me more than I could have possibly imagined. We got a lot right in our first event, but we had to learn many lessons the hard way and some of those could have been avoided. TED provide organisers with little more than skeleton instructions and I am yet to find an easy to use content source for running an event.
Over the next few months, I will be writing a ‘How to TEDx’ series to bridge this gap. With just one event under my belt I don’t claim to be an expert, but by documenting the lessons I’ve learned, hopefully organising a conference can become a little easier. Along the way, I will be inviting other organisers to share their advice in guest posts with the goal of creating the most comprehensive guide to running a TEDx conference out there.
