Design Your Talk Topic

Do you want to start giving talks at (virtual) conferences and events? Maybe public speaking terrifies you but you know it’s good for your career. Where do you start? What are you actually qualified to speak about?

Start sharing your experiences and ideas! Join us for a workshop to learn how to get started designing your talk topic. Learn a design-driven process you can use whenever you want to generate talk ideas, brainstorm potential talk topics, and receive feedback from your peers.

By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Learn about your personal ‘why’
  • Construct the context of your talk
  • Explore what topics you can speak about
  • Get access to resources to keep learning

Please take a moment to read through Women Talk Design's Code of Conduct before registering.

NOTE: You'll receive an email with the Zoom link 1-hour prior to the event. We'll check the registration 5-minutes after the workshop begins to send out the Zoom link to anyone who registered in the last hour.

Women Talk Design

We're on a mission to see a more diverse group of speakers on stage. We elevate women and gender non-binary speakers and their talks through our directories, empower event organizers with resources to engage more diverse speakers, and offer training, support, and community for new speakers.
