Benefits of Submitting

Speaking at an event like Subsurface can be great for your career, the community and for your company. Here’s why:

  1. It’s great for your career. Presenting on the great work you’re doing and demonstrating your presentation skills sets you apart from your peers and helps build your personal brand. It makes the community aware of the valuable work you’re doing and shows you can deliver influential talks and engage an audience. Even if you’re not actively seeking career advancement, speaking at conferences can open doors you never knew existed.
  2. It’s great for the community. By sharing your knowledge and expertise with peers, you help make the data lake community stronger as well as the communities’ surrounding projects. A stronger community means higher-quality and more innovative contributions, content, and collaborations — a win-win for everyone.
  3. It benefits your company. Presenting at industry conferences like Subsurface is a fantastic way to promote your company and the great work your team is doing. It’s also useful for positioning your company as a thought leader and for recruiting top talent, as it provides a mechanism to showcase the innovative ways your company is leveraging cloud data lake technologies.
