Sunday Workshop

Alongside the schedule above, there will be a workshop on becoming a WordCamp speaker. (Yeah, we know that’s kind of meta.)

12p – 2:30p: So You Want to Be a WordCamp Speaker: A practical workshop for beginners
Presented by: Kathryn Presner & Tammie Lister

Have you considered presenting at a WordCamp but thought you didn’t know enough or felt like an imposter? Does the idea of speaking in front of a group set your knees quivering and your heart racing? During this hands-on session we’ll look at what’s stopped you from speaking in the past – and explore how to move past your fears. We’ll delve into practical techniques for choosing a topic, writing a proposal, crafting presentation content, and making great slides. We’ll discuss how to avoid common public-speaking mistakes and techniques for battling stage fright. We’ll help you navigate the dreaded post-presentation Q&A session and gather post-talk feedback. Each participant will come out of the workshop with a WordCamp or meetup talk proposal – and more confidence to submit it.

Attendance is limited to 25 attendees. If you’re interested in attending, sign up using this form once you’ve purchased your WordCamp ticket:
