The Providence Speaking Society is proud to announce that speaker nominations are open for TEDxProvidence 2015.  The event will take place in May at the Columbus Theater on Providence's West Side. This year the themes are Entertainment, Finance and Environment.  The public is invited to nominate speakers in these categories via an online form at  ; Nominations will be open until Thursday March 5th, 2015.

Since 2011, TEDxProvidence has convened more than 1,500 individuals and organizations to celebrate Rhode Island and “ideas worth spreading” through a daylong event featuring distinguished members of the community based on that year's themes.

Do you know someone who excels in one the TEDxProvidence 2015 themes of Entertainment, Finance and/or Environment? Is there someone in Rhode Island that is doing great things in one of these areas, and you would love to know more? Do you yourself have something to say on one of this year's topics? Only nominated speakers will be chosen to speak in TEDxProvidence events, so nominate at today!

“Community nominations make this event possible.  Each year we learn about amazing entrepreneurs, activists, and artists through the nomination process,” said Jim Nellis of the TEDxProvidence Core Planning Committee.

Former speakers and hosts include the Honorable Elizabeth Roberts, Barnaby Evans, Hilary Jones, Martin Keen, Bari Harlam, Bert Crenca, Rick Benjamin, Gayle Corrigan, Andy Posner, and Christine West to name a few.  Now tell us who should be on stage in 2015!
