Demystifying Public Speaking, with Lara Hogan from Etsy

  • Oct 26, 2016 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note: this is an event intended for software developers who identify as women or non-binary*

In our work, we each have moments of being in a spotlight - whether it's during team standups, giving a presentation to a client, or pitching your promotion to your boss - and yet we all have different fears about those moments. 

This talk aims to help you identify your public speaking fears and learn tactics to address them, so you can feel prepared when that spotlight happens.

6:30-7 Refreshments and socializing 

7 Lara's talk!


Please bring photo id to this Meetup so you can sign in with security.

    Hi everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the meetup on Wednesday as much as I did. I wanted to post in the group because there were some of you that I did not get to meet.. I am a javascript recruiter here in the city and am working with American Express to help build out their digital acquisitions team. They are looking for a front end engineer to join their team. If you are looking to transition into a large, stable organization with a start-up feel, definitely email me for details! [masked]
