Public group
Location image of event venue


We Pivot and MilwaukeeJS are very excited to join forces for a panel discussion on how to deliver a great tech talk. If you have ever dreamed (or had a nightmare) about giving a tech talk, this session is for you. This panel and workshop will break down many of the barriers facing potential speakers. Topics that we'll address include tech expertise and beating imposter syndrome, facing fears of public speaking, and how to prepare and deliver a great presentation.

The first half of this session will be a panel discussion between some of the members of the Cream City Code speaker committee (Steven Hicks & Rachel Krause), who themselves are accomplished speakers and the discussion will be moderated by Maggie Fernandes. They will share best practices as well as some of the things to avoid when submitting a conference talk proposal. The second half is an open forum where our panel speakers will be leading small breakout groups, or you can form your own breakout group to workshop pitches or practice lightning talks.

6:00 PM - Doors open! Free food and drink provided thanks to our sponsors, MacGregor Partners & NVISIA!

***Please note that this will be our last meetup for the 2019 calendar year. We're actively filling slots for the 2020 meetup calendar so this event will be a great starting point for anyone that is considering giving a talk next year.
