Terry talks: Game on! (plus check out our video)

(link to Terry talks)

Details are finally here.

“Imagine UBC’s most fascinating and engaging students coming together for a day, giving ‘the talk of their lives,’ sharing their ideas and discussing their visions for UBC and the world. Now imagine being there, with students, alumni, faculty, administration, and members of the general public watching this unfold and partaking in the various discussions, and think of all the possibilities that this idea-share holds.”

Sounds interesting? Then do check out the Terry talks website. Conference is set for November 22nd, and deadline for application on October 6th. If you think you’re game to speak, or know of someone who should be, do check out our easy application process.

As well, if you haven’t already, check the above YouTube movie out. Since the Terry talks is all about students giving kick ass talks, we’ve made a silly video and PSA called “Things to avoid at all cost when speaking publicly.” Spread the word!
