"You thought hard about your structuring, thinking, presenting, ideas, etc..that you managed to understand them well enough to share your strategy with others."
"Damian did not disappoint at his Talking About Talking session. Enjoyed the group discussion approach."
-Amanda Follett, Spring 2018 Software Test Professionals conference
An informal, collaborative session exploring lessons learned from a career and lifetime of talking.
About 1 year ago, I began speaking professionally. About 3 years ago, I began speaking at conferences. About 40 years ago, I began speaking!
In this informal, educational, and enjoyable session, I offer lessons learned from a career and lifetime of talking. I share and facilitate discussion on (among other things):
Why – I began speaking at conferences, and why you might, too
What – topics I select, and which might work for you
How – I create a talk, and how you develop ideas
Come prepared to ask and answer questions as we collaboratively converse, and “talk about talking”!
Anyone interested in learning about or improving their public speaking.
Due to the collaborative nature of this talk, the content and takeaways change each time!
