Getting on Stage Pitch Workshop with PDXWIT

February 5 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Do you have an idea to share with the world? Lessons learned that could help others? Do you want to speak at a conference? Conference organizers often receive far more pitches from potential speakers than they have time on the schedule. Help your idea stand out and improve your chances for getting accepted as a conference speaker by improving your pitch. Kathy Lee, a .net software developer who has spoken at two national conferences and for PDXWIT, will lead a workshop to prepare you.


You’ll learn:
How to find the best conference for your submission
How to weave storytelling into your talk
How to write a compelling abstract
How to maintain audience interest and ensure they leave understanding what you wanted them to take away
How to find a speaking mentor — if you don’t know one, add Kathy on LinkedIn and ask her to help
