A session at indieconf 2011

Saturday 19th November, 2011

1:00pm to 2:00pm (EST)

Public speaking scares most people more than dying, but it’s also a necessary skill for independents trying to build their reputation. Speaking at user groups, conferences, and in front of clients is something we have to do. With a few key tricks, you’ll find it’s not that difficult or scary.We’ll discuss several techniques to make you a more effective public speaker, and then we’ll take the time to practice them (for a few brave volunteers!). You’ll learn how to avoid classic traps like Rambo spraying and doing the Secret Service. Then you’ll learn how to effectively engage your audience and present at their pace. You’ll leave with a solid toolbox of tricks and techniques that’ll make you look like a seasoned professional the next time you step in front of an audience of any size.
