Description: If you're considering public speaking on a technical event or you have already spoken, but want to improve your skills, you can learn new techniques from this training. We will use the complete Akademy conference as a learning experience.
The training will have a workshop part (Saturday and Sunday morning, Sunday afternoon) and individual practice/assessment sessions during the weekend.
The subjects we are going to cover (contact the trainer if you have suggestions!):
- The basics: content and structure
- The form: slides, delivery, body language
- Making your presentation shine
- Answers to common questions: Where to speak? How to prepare an abstract?
Before the workshop please prepare two talks (2 minutes each):
- Why you're taking this workshop?
- What are you working on now? (in KDE , school project, work,...)
