Welcome to Talk 6 of 12 - Preparing for Your First Conference Talk
Presenting at conferences is an amazing way to build credibility, notoriety, and a solid reputation for technical knowledge. Leveraging speaking in your career can help you make the most out of your talents by making you visible to people who value what you have to offer. It is never too early to start speaking -- there's always something you know that others don't -- and getting a head start lets you reap the career benefits as soon as possible.
This talk will focus on how you can use speaking to increase your visibility and career trajectory. They’ll cover:
- The value of public speaking
- The mindset you need to enjoy presenting
- How to find and pitch yourself for speaking events
- How to put an effective presentation together
The goal of this talk is to get you up on the speaking stage and reaping the career benefits that come with presenting.
This talk will be given by Janice Tomich, Executive Speaker Coach.
