How to Talk Really Really Good Jess White and Moreton Brockely – 14th March 2019

14th March from 7pm - Uni Days, Nottingham

What's it about?

How to Talk Really Really Good!

What will we be doing?

Notts IoT are branching out for March!

We’ve got the wonderful Jess White and Moreton Brockley coming along to talk to us about “How to talk Really Really Good”.

Our tech community is full of bright and interesting people each with their unique experiences and points of view. Each and every person has something they can share that some of us would benefit from. You are one of these people. But how do you conquer that first step to submit a talk, and what’s in it for you?

Jess White and Moreton Brockley will be your guides through the challenging lands of talk submissions. From picking a topic to structuring the talk summary that will inspire and blow minds and submitting it. Finally, we’ll talk through why you should even think about speaking – it’s a scary thing to do, is it worth it?

By the end of this talk, you’ll not only be ready to inspire with your words but feel fully prepared to take on the world.

What do we need to bring?

Yourself and a willingness to learn some cool stuff!
