Talking About Talking

Summary

An informal, collaborative session exploring lessons learned from a career and lifetime of talking.

Abstract

About 1 year ago, I began speaking professionally. About 3 years ago, I began speaking at conferences. About 40 years ago, I began speaking!

  • 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”!
