Giving conference talks is a game changer. Speaking can propel a career forward, expand your network considerably, and lead to wonderfully surprising opportunities.
You get to learn and be inspired, as well as share. You get free tickets to a conference you may never have been able to attend another way. Some also pay for travel, lodging, and/or honorarium.
As a speaker, you get to have lively conversations with peers and idols, about the topics that most fascinate you personally.
At this Girl Develop It workshop, you'll get practical skills for
doing your first proposal:
* how to find relevant opportunities
* dissecting calls for proposals (CFPs)
* evaluating CFPs for fit with you
* questions it's cool to ask organizers
* the darned fair expectations to hold
* brainstorming a topic
* writing the abstract
Snacks and refreshments will be provided at the workshop!
