So You Want To Be A Speaker

So You Want To Be A Speaker

I’m so excited for you! Technical speaking has opened up my world, changed my career, and introduced me to a wide variety of conference center food.

I’m collecting resources that I’ve created for aspiring conference speakers on this page. I’m also going to include links to other resources I’ve found handy.

If you’re interested in learning more about technical speaking, there’s a contact form at the bottom of the page, feel free to reach out, and I’ll help if I can.
