TED-Style Talk Speaking Opportunity

AAPC’s TED-style Talks are modeled after the global TED community, which creatively gives experts a platform to share their unique background and knowledge with other curious thinkers around the world. AAPC is striving to uphold a similar mission utilizing the TED-style format, with shorter talks and content specific to politics and our industry, at our 2018 Pollie Awards & Conference, April 11-13 in Nashville, TN. We are looking to hear about your specific experiences in the business, how you got where you are today and your overall observations on the state of politics. Our goal is to ultimately lift the thinking of our members beyond the day to day exchange of political warfare and let them see a more personal side of the top people in the business. Ready to share your vision?

*AAPC will provide a travel stipend to offset selected speakers’ costs.
