Akhg2mn

Do you want to increase your career opportunities and visibility in the tech field? Have you attended a tech conference but not given a talk yet on stage? Not even sure why people do this "conference speaking" thing in the first place?

Join us for the 2015 “Women Who Do Tech Talks” Workshop!

Three years ago, Women Who Code Who Do Tech Talks Too launched a number of speaking careers. It's back!

Giving tech talks is a viable way to build your career and get noticed - our experienced panelists and workshop mentors will discuss and educate attendees on:

How to find speaking opportunities
How to structure & improve your technical talks
Generating interest & promoting your talk
Navigating the CFP process (Call For Proposals / papers)
How to effectively network at tech conferences
Signs of a healthy conference culture
And more!

You should attend if:

You’ve considered speaking at a tech conference for the first time

Your tech startup wants to encourage more women employees to be active in the community and tech conferences
You want to learn how to support your co-workers and women in the tech community to be conference speakers
