Tuesday, June 9 @ 5-6pm UTC (1-2pm)
Workshop 1 of 3: Who am I to be speaking? & Finding a topic that people would love to hear
— We will dispel some myths about being a speaker and answer your questions about speaking. Together we will work on overcoming the thought, “But I’m not an expert in anything”.
— Via hands-on exercises and small group discussions, we will help you come up with topics and show you how to choose one. Everyone has something they can talk about – let’s find yours.
— No prerequisite
Wednesday, June 10 @ 5-6pm UTC (1-2pm)
Workshop 2 of 3: Creating a great pitch
— Together we will write a meetup description or WordCamp pitch for your talk. This also doubles as helping you start to write your talk!
— Prerequisite: Please come with an idea for a talk. If you don’t have one, then please make sure you attend Tuesday!
Thursday, June 11 @ 5-6pm UTC (1-2pm)
Workshop 3 of 3: Online stage presence
— We will give you tips for public speaking and being on camera. We will be making the improvements together in the call.
— No prerequisite
You are encouraged to attend all 3 workshops in a week, but you are also welcome to attend only the sessions you wish.
The following week, we’ll have group coaching both for workshop attendees to get additional support on the material as well as open to those who haven’t taken a workshop.
Tuesday, June 16 @ 4-5pm UTC (12-1pm) or
Thursday, June 18 @ 7-8pm UTC (3-4pm)
Group Coaching on Zoom: Q&A and Get Feedback
People from marginalized or underrepresented groups are invited to this open session to bring your questions or have some open practise time. You can get help on anything related to public speaking at WordPress events, such as:
— feedback on your title and pitch
— feedback on your slides
— practising your public speaking
— feedback on improving your public speaking
— feedback on organizing your talk structure
— answering Q&A questions you are worried people will ask
You are also welcome to attend to just watch and learn from others getting coaching.
Please note! These offerings are intended to train speakers who are members of a marginalized or underrepresented group in terms of gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, age, etc.
If this is you, please get your ticket(s) now. https://www.eventbrit...
Everyone - this is global. Please help us spread the word!
