Talking the talk


Sophie Koonin is travelling up to give her talk ‘Talking the talk: how to prepare and give great conference talks’. Just in time for our conference’s call for papers opening…

How many times have you watched a conference or meet-up talk and thought, “I want to do that someday”? Well, why shouldn’t someday be soon? Faced with the prospect of giving her first conference talk earlier this year, Sophie sought advice from experienced tech conference speakers, and what she got back was too good to keep to herself!

In the most meta of talks, you’ll learn about the process of giving a talk, from conception all the way through to delivery. What should you talk about? How should you structure the slides? What’s the best way to practise? What should you wear? From the technology hiccups that could catch you out to That One Neat Trick™ that will ensure your demos go without a hitch, you’ll come away feeling more than ready to submit that Call for Papers.


Our thanks to tombola, Big Bite and Bytemark for making Frontend NE possible.
