    I definitely need a few killer topics to pitch for #wcphx 2016 😀 Since I’m potentially not actually going to be in the the inside during speaker selection 😉

  18. Made Better Studio Avatar

    Completely agree with you @YouTooCanBeGuru I am seriously having problems finishing my own website lol because I do it ALL DAY for other people 😉

  19. Made Better Studio Avatar

    @YouTooCanBeGuru You would totally rock that topic!

    Having just submitted to WCPGH, there was an ambiguous text field and it was kind of open.

  24. Jonathan Perlman Avatar

    Wise advice from an organizer.

  25. Made Better Studio Avatar

    @kevinwhoffman be interesting and provide an outline or a compelling case for why other people definitely need to hear what you have to say

  26. Jonathan Perlman Avatar

    Make the blurb focus on what the attendee will get out of it. What will they learn that will be useful for their project.

    I haven’t spoken before, and have a nice idea for a talk, but I’m nervous about not being able to answer questions from the crowd after I’m done….:/

    @jasontucker https://getspeak.in/ GET SPEAKING!
    encouraging new public speakers

  31. Kevin Hoffman Avatar

    It wasn’t quite clear whether I was convincing them based strictly on the topic choice, or if I was expected to sell them on the specifics of my talk.

  32. Made Better Studio Avatar

    Ask the orgs what they’re looking for if they just leave the speaker submission completely open
