Do you remember the first time you presented at a conference? Were you nervous? I know I was. I’m calling all speakers to reach out into the community and help, mentor, motivate and encourage new speakers to take the stage.
Somewhere in the spring of 2005 my colleague Lucas Jellema asked me if I would do a joint presentation with him. I said, "Sure, sounds like fun." Did I really know what I was getting myself into? Absolutely not.
During the preparation of that talk I learned so much from Lucas. He guided me through the whole process. His mentoring helped me walk to the front of the room, stand on the stage, and give my first presentation. I knew whatever happened I was as prepared as I could be and I was ready to go.
After that talk was done, I was hooked on giving presentations. I’m very grateful of the opportunity that I was offered and tried (both successfully and unsuccessfully) to encourage colleagues to share the stage with me. The UKOUG embraced this initiative and has reached out to old and new speakers for their annual conference in December. I’m glad to see that a number of speakers already reached out via Twitter.
Currently I’m in contact with two new speakers and we’re working on putting an abstract together, so hopefully I’ll be on stage with a new speaker at the end of the year… or maybe even better: I’ll be at the side line watching the new speaker take stage by themselves.
Having the technical knowledge to create your presentation is one part of becoming a speaker, but you also need to know how to address the room, answer questions (even when you don’t know the answer), and write the abstract. Join me by sharing your knowledge with a colleague and help them become a presenter. You can contact me at @alexnuijten or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
