Talent Night 2020

TEDxAmsterdamWomen is looking for the next generation of speakers.

Have you ever dreamt about telling your story on a TEDx stage? This is your chance. For the third year in a row TEDxAmsterdamWomen is hosting Talent Night. Where we open our stage to new, undiscovered “ideas worth spreading”.
Individuals with little or no experience and from all walks of life are given the opportunity to take the stage as a TEDx speaker and audition for a spot on our main stage. Join us for a chance to inspire change!

We are looking for fresh ideas – for talents, that defy the odds with their extraordinary and undiscovered ideas that are worth spreading. We feature the game changers, local heroes and rebels; individuals working hard to make their community and the world better. It’s all about shining a light on overlooked issues and topics or putting a new spin on existing ones. And all of this in true TEDx fashion – focusing on one of the TEDx pillars: Technology, Entertainment, Design, Global issues, Business, Art & Music, Science or Sustainability.

What’s in it for you? 

Besides the opportunity to ignite change. You will enter a network that is all about creating a more inclusive and equal society.
You’ll get the chance to raise your profile. And your idea will get the attention it deserves.

How it works

During the night, 10 game changers will pitch their ideas in 3 minutes, to an audience and a jury. The winner will be granted a spot on the main stage during the annual TEDxAmsterdamWomen event and will receive a tailor-made mentorship. Join us for this unique and exciting evening of ideas, drinks, and networking.

Talent Night 2019

Last year’s winner Ambrien Moeniralam, was only 17 when she delivered a heartfelt speech on fighting street harassment. Or take a look at last year’s runner up Houda Noussi, a spoken word artist who is using her power of words to fight for her daughter by challenging society’s bias to look at a person’s diagnosis first.
