FAQs: Speaking at TEDxKuwaitCity
TEDxKuwaitCity isn't a typical conference. It is a community platform and our audience has high expectations of the speakers; the TEDxKuwaitCity speaker team works with speakers well in advance of the conference to help shape a presentation that will succeed on the TEDxKuwaitCity stage.
