Workshop: Improv Thinking
Come play some improv games, tell stories, and get a little silly. We will cover how to respond when things go wrong, how to answer questions when you don't know the answer, and how to better engage your audience. This workshop will be based on a combination of our personal experiences as well as our learnings from Speechless trainings. ------------ If you'd like some background on the group, check out Global Diversity CFP Day at We ran the Detroit event and had a great time working with participants across a number of different underrepresented groups in tech. Most came in without a clear idea of what they'd even speak about given the chance, but every single one came away with an awesome talk proposal!

    What we're about

    Inspired by Global Diversity CFP Day (a worldwide effort to guide new speakers, particularly those underrepresented in tech and as presenters, towards their first conference talks), Detroit Speakers in Tech seeks to connect, train, and support speakers throughout the year. We host workshops for speakers of all experience levels to put together conference talks, refine every aspect of your proposal, and improve presentation delivery.

    Join us if you:

    - are new to conference speaking
    - identify as part of a group that is underrepresented in tech
    - are nervous about taking the stage
    - and/or would simply like to improve as a speaker!
