This workshop helps speakers from underrepresented groups prepare to speak at conferences. This will in turn help local meetups, Drupal Camps, and even DrupalCons develop a more diverse speaker roster. The workshop helps folks bust through their impostor syndrome and develop a topic, title, pitch, bio, and outline.
The workshop covers:
- Impostor syndrome
- Finding a topic
- Better speaker tips
- Writing a great pitch
- Creating an outline
- Creating great slides
- Public speaking confidence
This workshop is a great fit for you if you’ve ever felt uncomfortable about speaking at events or wanted to present but found yourself thinking:
- “What would I talk about?”
- “I’m not an expert in anything.”
