Lightning Talks with Women In Tech Belfast (Lean In)

08/11/2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

• What we’ll do:

At the start of this year Women In Tech Belfast (Lean In) held a number of workshops to give more women the skills to encourage them into public speaking, with the aim of ensuring representative speakers at local tech events. As a continuation of this, we are collaborating with them to co-host a lightning talks event for those that want to try their hand, or practice some more ahead of other events.

We are looking for new and beginner speakers to present 5-15 minute lightening talks to a supportive, women-dominated, techie audience.

These talks can be about anything related in some way to tech; you do not need to be a coder; you do not have attended the workshops or any WIT event previously; you do not need to take questions at the end of the presentation if you don’t want to; you can be at any level in industry (and we welcome a mix!); the presentation can be in whatever format, and as (in)formal as you like.

Be brave; be seen, be heard; and lean in! You have plenty of time to prepare so…do it! Nominate yourself to speak at the event here: https://goo.gl/forms/ib6NBAo8SneAcaQh2
