1. Curation

You will be allocated up to 10 hours of 1:1 consultation to make sure you can communicate your idea in the best manner possible. Together, we will analyse your talk content, investigate media interstitials to be inserted into the talk, and affirm its independence from any direct religious or political agendas. Furthermore, we will ensure that the talk's content adheres to TikTok and YouTube’s publishing policies. These sessions are tailored to your individual needs and entail but do not strictly adhere to the following format:

Session 1 - Introduction
Session 2 - Coherence
Session 3 - Script & Style
Session 4 - Visuals & Audience breakdown
Session 5 - Media & Distribution
Session 6 - Rehearsal
Session 7 - Editorial
Session 8 - Open hours

2. Production

The talks will be filmed at iconic venues across 50 cities we will be visiting. The decision to choose a particular venue rests with the Oxford Talks curation and production team and is primarily based on the availability and production facilities at a particular location. For our first city Oxford, we have chosen the Oxford Union

Oxford Union
The Oxford Union Society, commonly referred to simply as the Oxford Union, is a debating society in Oxford, England, whose membership is drawn primarily from the University of Oxford. Founded in 1823, it is one of Britain's oldest university unions and one of the world's most prestigious private students' societies.The Oxford Union has a tradition of hosting some of the world's most prominent individuals across politics, academia and popular culture, including US Presidents Ronald Reagan,Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, British Prime Ministers Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, John Major, David Cameron and Theresa May, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, activists Malcolm X, the Dalai Lama, Tommy Robinson, Mother Teresa and Jordan Peterson, actors Morgan Freeman, Mark Hamill and Alec Baldwin, musicians Sir Elton John and Michael Jackson, and sportspeople Diego Maradona and Manny Pacquiao.

To accommodate the current uncertainty caused by the pandemic and the busy schedule of your fellow orators travelling internationally, we follow a pooling format, i.e. whenever 10 orators have passed their curation training and are ready to film their talks, we book the venue and film their talks.

Our in-house equipment list is extensive and includes cameras such as the Sony FS7,Canon C300 Mark II, Canon 1DX Mark II and Sony A7s Mark II, and Red Digital Cinema cameras – with a full complement of high-end lenses, lights and audio equipment. On the day, we will provide you with prompters and playback screens. This means you don’t have to memorise the talk content and read it off a prompter if you prefer. On the other hand,the playback screen will help you go through your video immediately after recording to have a glimpse of your performance and re-record parts where you feel necessary.

We can also accommodate reasonable lighting, stage design, or camera equipment requests.

Frequently asked questions

Who is the typical person to join Brave New World?

Our project is specifically designed for people whose ideas are on their ascendancy at the moment. These people are not public figures or celebrities per se but have been working on their craft for years, and we believe that if their ideas get implemented to their full glory, they could change the world. So our orators are rebels, non-conformists, and trailblazers. In short, people who believe in pushing the human race forward compared to worrying about how many views their video will get.

What’s the cost to join?

Ideas are free, but unfortunately, blockchain isn’t. At Oxford Talks, we don’t engage in sponsorships or any activity of selling our community’s data to advertisers. To make this project self-sufficient, we charge an activation fee of £5500 that each orator pays, and we spend it as soon as we get it on production, venue hire, NFT hosting and spreading your idea on different platforms.

I can not pay the activation fee, but I still want to join.

We offer a discounted price for the Non-Profit and Education sectors and can help setup a payment plan. Please get in touch with our finance team at for more information.

Will you pay for my accommodation and flight to Oxford and Boston?

If you travel further than 100 miles to the venue in Oxford or Boston, we are happy to pay for your one-night accommodation at Marriot Oxford or at Courtyard by Marriot in Boston, respectively. Unfortunately, we can’t accommodate flights to and from the venue.

Do I have to talk about NFTs? How will they help with my class?

Not at all. We use NFTs and Blockchain technology to implement and monitor engagements, but as an orator, you don’t have to talk about NFTs.

What is the expected time commitment?

From the day of joining, we would need 24hrs of your time spread across 30-45 days.

What is the selection process?

Oxford Talks has all the responsibility from identifying and curating the idea, production of the video and finally, its distribution through partners. The selection process involves fitting the orator and their idea into a diverse range of internal frameworks we have at the company. Still, we can briefly mention some which are critical:

  • First-hand: The best orators are the “primary source” of their respective idea. Simply put, they’re the artist, not the art critic—the player, not the commentator.
  • New or niche: There’s a fine line between being an idea being so niche that your topic won’t appeal to a broad audience and being just niche enough that the audience is surprised and fascinated by something they’ve never heard of before.
  • Old problem, new way: Most of the applications we receive are for incremental improvements on an existing idea—a slightly better app or pedagogy. In other words, we’re not looking for someone who trains a faster horse: we want the speaker who invented the car! The best orators present genuinely divergent solutions.
How long can the video be, and where will the video be hosted?

The maximum duration of the final footage will be 10 minutes. The video will be made public on our TikTok channel as six separate bite-sized videos. However, a private copy will be hosted on Oxford Talks YouTube and auctioned at OpenSea.

What is our relation with Masterclass?

Masterclass is our learning partner and provides our educators with tools and techniques to develop a compelling Oxford Class. They help us endorse our commitment to creating communities of lifelong learners and critical thinkers.

I get paid to do public speaking, so why should I pay to speak?

Oxford Talks doesn’t sell tickets or consider itself an event or public speaking company. We are a media technology company which seeks to create and inspire change in communities by deploying web3 technologies to establish individuals as thought leaders. Public speaking is one aspect of the whole learning experience with Oxford Talks and contributes to establishing your personal brand, but does not essentially represent the entire engagement with us.

How many slots are available?

We are filming 2500 orators across 50 cities, with each city capped at 50 ideas only. They are selected on a first-come basis after initial curational approval.

Who will watch this video?

Based on the content of the video, we can target a wide arrange of audiences and demographics. Ad/Campaign Management is an in-house service delivered by Oxford Talks and is included in the activation fee.
