About This Workshop

Women Talk Design is on a mission to see more diverse speakers on stage. In this workshop, we’ll provide new speakers with the framework and confidence to begin crafting their first talk. Learn where to start, understand why storytelling is important and how to use it in your talk, and begin drafting an outline of a short talk. You'll have a chance to work on your talk in a safe, supportive environment and get feedback on your ideas along the way.

Note: This is Part 1 of a 2 Part Workshop on Crafting Your First Talk & Delivering with Confidence. Registrants will be notified when we offer Part 2 in Austin.
