Does public speaking terrify you? Do you want to try your hand at delivering a tech talk or share your learning journey, but need a bit of help? Is it about time you got promoted but you need to present your best self to management? Or do you simply feel you can do better when you present your ideas and need some help from veteran speakers in constructing your thoughts? Then our International Women’s Day ‘Presenting Yourself’ workshop on 7th March is not to be missed!
The aim of ‘Presenting Yourself’ is to provide women at the early stage of their careers (including but not at all limited to students, graduates, modern apprentices, returners) with resources and support to turn their experiences and passions in technology into their first three minute tech or tech-related talk, which they will deliver at the end of the day in front of a supportive audience of peers and mentors.
The workshop will provide you with at least one senior mentor who will help you shape a coherent, powerful message based on your experiences, route or passions in tech. Note that you will work together in small groups and you are not required to prepare a concept or material ahead of time.
You will be welcomed at 9am for breakfast, kicking off formally at 9.30am, a delicious lunch is planned for noon, and we’ll finish at 5.30pm. In between you’ll work in groups, there will be a keynote speaker, and other useful education in the space of public speaking and body language.
Tech talks are fundamental to the Scottish tech industry, which prides itself in community, knowledge sharing and building the networks we need to solve problems in our ever-changing world. This International Women’s Day, we want to empower you to contribute to and be at the centre of this community!
