Step up, stand out!

It’s not long until Portobello hosts its first ever Tedx event, and we’re seeking sponsorship and support to help make it the best it can be.

In the spirit of spreading ideas, we’ll help you reach our audience through tailored advertising of your company at the event and online, social media shout outs, logo placement on all promotional material, event tickets and more.

We’re also keen to hear from supporters who can offer something a little different…

In kind support offers such as goody bags, printing, filming, catering, t-shirts – or any other ideas – would be warmly welcomed.

To play your part in the success of Tedx Portobello in May, please contact the team:

Get planting seeds

We want to thank everyone for reaching out to us in January.

We opened up a space here on our website to nominate speakers for the coming event in May.

We’re delighted to have received dozens of responses! Our volunteers will be contacting potential speakers throughout February. Look out for updates.

Until May we’re going to be working to provide a platform for the community to share thoughts, connections and ideas about seeing things differently.

We’re digging a wee veg patch, so you can keep planting seeds.


TEDx is coming to Porty!

With the New Year comes new opportunities.

Our team of volunteers are currently working to bring TEDx Portobello to life in May of this year.

TEDx Portobello will be a series of inspirational, uplifting and insightful talks from people who see things differently.

We’re excited to be opening up the event to the community to suggest speakers and help shape the event in May.

If you’d like to volunteer or ask more about the project, contact the team at, and be sure to find out what TED’s all about.
