Our tech community is full of bright and interesting people, each with their unique experiences and points of view. Each and every person has something they can share that some of us would benefit from. You are one of these people. But how do you conquer that first step to submitting a talk, and what’s in it for you?

Let us be your guides through the challenging lands of talk submissions. From picking a topic to structuring the talk summary that will inspire and blow minds and submitting it. Finally, we’ll talk through why you should even think about speaking - it’s a scary thing to do, is it worth it?

By the end of this talk, you’ll not only be ready to inspire with your words but feel fully prepared to take on the world.
