We are NOT looking for
- Advertising: Advertising, product placement and marketing are not allowed during your talk.
- Science 101: New Age, Ouija, and “little green men” types of talks, as well as sciences which are not rooted in scientific evidence, do not belong at TEDx events.
- Politics and religion: Politics and religion are part of community life; topics based on respect and understanding, without political or religious agendas, propaganda, or partisanship, can be shared; however, they cannot be divisive.
As a TEDxUniversityofSaskatchewan speaker, you will:
- Attend preparatory coaching meetings (to be announced).

- Sign an agreement granting us the right to film and post your talk.

As the TEDxUniversityofSaskatchewan team, we will:
- Help you put your best foot forward.
