   Becoming a speaker


Methodology & Culture

Beginner & novice level
Room 4 Monday from 18:20 til 19:20

"Imagine Everyone Naked"... that's the worst advice any public speaker can ever get. And that's not something we would like to talk about here, either. In this session, we aspire to make public speaking less frightening. With people involved in both technical and non-technical performances, we aim to cover some critical aspects of public speaking: up-front preparation (where to start, which topic to pick), mitigating stress during the actual performance (how to deliver a great presentation) and actual "speaking mechanics" - with some basic tricks and tips how to sound good, breath normally etc.

If you are stressed out, whenever you think about saying anything in public, no matter if that's a conference talk or a presentation in front of a group of colleagues - this is a session for you. First-hand experience how others prepare themselves for any public appearance.
