If you have something you're passionate about, we'd love for you to share it with us.
A lightning talk is a 5 minute presentation on anything you'd be willing to talk about, and afterwards hold a brief QA with the attendees present. Lightning talks are perfect for helping you practice that potential fear of talking in public, racing a clock, and overall just being around a group of people you may not know yet.
By being in this group you don't even need to do a lightning talk yet, if you don't feel like it. Come join us, watch and support the ladies brave enough to share their passions, and collectively we may all learn a thing or two along the way. If all else fails, there shall be pizza.
Some helpful hints for those that want to present:
• Avoid a lot of text, pictures speak a thousand words. Whereas in five minutes you may not fit in as many as a thousand, it's still going to be amazing.
• Create your slides on Google Slides so we can all connect and present seamlessly and update last minute fixes in real time without having to upload or email new versions to the presenter computer.
• Feel free to bring your own computer, I can provide all chargers and AV cables needed for all types of computers. Of course, if you bring in your own charger it will always be appreciated.
• If you do plan on presenting please DM me and let me know the topic so I can arrange the order and introductions.
As always any suggestions and feedback as move forward is always appreciated. I look forward to learning from all you fantastic ladies!
