Our tech community is full of bright and interesting people each with their unique experiences and points of view. Every person has valuable content to share, including YOU!

Jessica and Moreton will begin by talking through the benefits of speaking, both to your career and personally. You will learn how to come up with a talk idea, write an abstract and bio for submission. We will then spend some time answering questions and giving assistance on focusing your lists of talk ideas.

Afterwards, Jessica and Moreton will be on hand to guide you through creating your Speaker Profiles, Talk Titles and Descriptions so that you stand the best possible chance of being accepted to talk at events.

This workshop is for all levels. By the end, you will have had face to face help with coming up with a talk idea and creating a bio showing off your expertise.
