Ever wondered why you should try public speaking OR how you can get the confidence to present on a stage  or how you can  speak at a conference?  Conference speaking  usually starts with writing an abstract about a topic that you are passionate  abou t or want to tell a story about  which gets reviewed by a conference’s program committee upon submission.  If you get accepted, the next steps are preparing your content & slides,  practicing, presenting  virtually  or on stage  and convincing the audience to see your point of view on a subject  matter.  Come to this talk to  learn how you can write abstracts, where  you can  submit them & how you can  practice  being  a public speaker, presenter and  story teller  all in  unde r 40 minute s from someone who’s spoken at over a dozen conferences.  With this knowledge,  you can  apply to  speak at any meetup or  conference, maybe even at a  DroidCon  near you!
