We want to encourage people that wouldn't normally speak at conferences to give it a go!
Make the Session title and Session description really shine - along with the format, level and tags they are the only fields that will be shown for anonymous voting by the public. All other values are only seen by organisers (apart from your bio which is shown on the agenda if your talk is chosen).
Note: We are asking a number of optional demographic questions to allow us to report on our efforts to promote diversity of submissions.
We've found some great advice for presenting at: www.guysmithferrier.com/Downloads/HowToGiveGreatPresentations.pdf
Still not convinced?
Email us to get a mentor - we have a bunch of experienced speakers who are happy to have a confidential chat with you to run through any ideas you have or give safe and constructive feedback.
