If you’ve never spoken at an event like PodCamp before, then you’ll definitely want to make the SpeakerUp panel this Tuesday, March 19. I’m one of several experienced speakers serving on the panel. We’ll do our best to de-mystify the process and make you feel at ease about speaking.
Why speak at PodCamp?
- It’s a great way to get your name out there. Whether you work for yourself or someone else, building your professional reputation is important. This is one of the best ways to do it.
- When you know something well enough to talk about it, you REALLY know it. Every time I’ve planned a talk, I’ve realized almost immediately I don’t know the subject well enough. But guess what? Once I’m committed to the talk, I HAVE to learn the stuff. Even if you think you’re already an expert, you’ll learn your stuff much deeper when you have to figure out how to explain it to others.
- Related: There are things you know better than anyone else. The rest of us would appreciate learning about them.
- Finally, the PodCamp audience is a safe one. We WANT you to succeed. And it’s OK if you don’t. But I’m willing to bet you’ve got something great to say — so plan to join us at SpeakerUp and then submit your session for PodCamp Nashville 2013!
