Details

This is a workshop for women who are thinking about speaking at WordPress events, such as WordPress Meetup and WordCamp. During this hands-on session, we’ll look at what has stopped you from speaking in the past — and explore how to move past your doubts.

We will discuss some common myths about public speaking, different talk formats, and we will focus on finding your areas of expertise (yes, you have areas of expertise!). We will brainstorm topics you can talk about at a WordCamp or other event.

Each participant will come out of the workshop with a WordCamp or Meetup talk idea — and more confidence to submit it.

*** You do NOT have to have any experience in public speaking. This workshop is for all levels of experience. ***

This workshop is for you if:

- You identify as a woman.
- You've thought about speaking at Meetup or WordCamp but haven’t been able to think of a topic.
- You're not sure how to develop a talk about your topic.
