The stage awaits...

45 minute beginner seminar

Description/Proposal

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to move from audience member to conference speaker? Is this a journey you want to make? In 2018, after 18 months of rejections, I finally got accepted for my first conference talk. In fact I got accepted for 6!

This talk charts the highs and lows of conference speaking and what it feels like the first time you take to the stage, all from the perspective of a novice conference speaker.

I'll share all the tips I picked up from other speakers and the things I learned the hard way. Armed with this knowledge hopefully your journey from first conference submission to first conference talk will be quicker than mine.
