    Link visible for attendees

    A 2-hour interactive and transformational watch party to boost your speaking confidence in WordPress meetups and WordCamps

    Does the thought of speaking at one of our Meetups or WordCamps intrigue you? Do you identify as a person from a marginalized or underrepresented identity who is thinking about speaking at a WordPress Meetup or WordCamp? Do you think you don’t know or have anything worth speaking about?

    The Diverse Speaker Training Group (#WPDiversity) invites you to join us for a workshop in a fun format: an Interactive, Transformational Watch Party!

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

    This unique, interactive Watch Party format will be facilitated by Jill Binder and mentors.

    Together, attendees will watch the Diverse Speaker Training Workshop Part 1 on the Learn WordPress site and be invited to participate in the engaging and transformative exercises in real-time and get immediate feedback.

    We will cover:

    • Why speak at WordPress events?
    • Explore what has stopped you from speaking in the past and how to move past your fears
    • Dispelling some myths about speakers/speaking
    • Coming up with topics and choosing one
    • How to boost your speaking confidence

    There will be an invitation to participate actively by:

    • Working on the video exercises together and receiving live coaching from mentors and attendees
    • Chatting about the material we are watching in the Zoom text chat

    We call this Transformational because you will not simply be sitting and watching a video. Doing these exercises with us creates a profound shift in how you see yourself and your tech knowledge.

    This event will be held in English.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST REGISTER ON EVENTBRITE TO SAVE YOUR SPOT: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/how-to-own-your-expertise-start-speaking-at-wordpress-events-wpdiversity-tickets-462153532657

    “I felt like you were reading my mind on some of these points about what holds us back from speaking. And the brainstorm prompts are all really, really good. I walked away with a ton of ideas and newfound confidence. I’m excited to talk now. This workshop works!” – Erika Lewis, WordPress Dev, Washington DC

    What is Builder Basics?

    The WordPress Editor is a blank canvas that allows us to express our creativity and design beautiful layouts using blocks. However, building with blocks is a paradigm shift compared to traditional website design. Sometimes it can be challenging to know where to start or keep up with all of the continual enhancements, especially in the context of Full Site Editing.

    In the “Builder Basics” series, we will attempt to demystify components of the building experience. From a deep dive into the Query block to an exploration of block alignment and spacing, you’ll learn to master the basics of modern WordPress design.
