This month, we're putting on a workshop at Eagle Labs. It's all about getting out there and applying to speak at conferences or other events. There'll also be dinner and drinks provided by Pragmatic :)

Get speaking workshop

This workshop will provide you with tools and encouragement to deliver the best talk you can – even if you find the idea of getting up on stage completely terrifying.

You'll learn how to create a conference talk from pitch to delivery. We'll share plenty of ideas, tips and feedback too – so everyone can gain something from coming along.

WordCamp Brighton (https://2017.brighton.wordcamp.org/) (a WordPress conference) is happening this August, so this will be a great opportunity to brainstorm a talk idea for that. But the workshop is designed to help you get speaking at any event you want to.

We'll cover what it's like to deliver a talk, the pitfalls, the benefits, guidance on preparing a speaker application, and information and resources to help you become the best speaker you can be.

• This venue is accessible for wheelchair users.
