TEDx speakers should understand these set TED rules: All talks are 18 minutes or less, with most being in the 15-minute range. We have seen 5-minute talks be insanely powerful. The max time each speaker is allotted will be dictated by the total time of the event divided by the total number of speakers and other components of the program.
