As a student-led organization, our goal is to provide a platform for students to share their ideas and inspire others. We want to promote innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship among students, and build a community of enthusiastic students who are passionate about sharing their ideas and inspiring others.
If you are excited about the prospect of sharing your ideas with the world and inspiring others, then sign up to become a speaker for THUAS Talks today! Our talks are typically 10 to 15 minutes long, and we encourage speakers to focus on a single idea and use storytelling and visual aids to convey their message.
By sharing your story, you can make a difference in the world and inspire others to take action. And, by joining the THUAS Talks community, you can connect with other like-minded students, build your network, and gain valuable experience in public speaking and communication.
So, what are you waiting for? Sign up to become a speaker today and let your voice be heard! Deadline: Friday October 13, 2023.
The first THUAS Talks are planned on November 14, 2023, from 16:00 - 17:00.
To ensure that our talks are effective, engaging, and respectful of the guidelines of The Hague University of Applied Sciences, we have developed some guidelines for our speakers. Here are the key guidelines that you should keep in mind when preparing your talk:
- Non-promotional: Your talk should be non-promotional in nature, and you should avoid using your talk to promote your own products, services, or organizations. This is not a platform for self-promotion, but rather a platform to share your ideas and inspire others.
- Respectful: Your talk should be respectful of the audience, and you should avoid using offensive language, making discriminatory remarks, or engaging in any forms of hate speech. We want to create an inclusive and respectful community where everyone feels safe to express their ideas.
- Practice: Practice makes perfect! You are expected to rehearse your talk in advance, and to be well-prepared and confident when you take the stage. This will help you deliver your message effectively and engage the audience.
- Politics: THUAS Talks is not a place to push your political agenda. You should refrain from using your talk to push, endorse, or advocate for any political party, ideology, or stream. We want to keep our talks neutral and focused on inspiring others.
- Declining: The University is allowed to not upload or stop the talk if guidelines have not been considered. Note this only happens in extreme cases.
- Manuscript: You need to hand in a manuscript of your talk in advance, so the script can be approved by the organization before the talk is given. This ensures that your talk is on topic, engaging, and respectful of the guidelines.
