Design Your Talk Topic (LA)

Tuesday, April 26th, 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM


Women Talk Design is on a mission to see diverse speakers on stage, and we want to help you design your talk topic. We're excited to partner with LAUX and Hexagon UX LA on this workshop!

Do you want to start speaking at conferences? Maybe public speaking terrifies you but you know it’s good for your career. But where do you start? You have a lot of ideas, but what are you actually qualified to speak about?

Join us for a workshop to learn how to get started. You'll get practice identifying:

  • your personal ‘why’
  • your audience
  • what topics you can speak about

Walk away with ideas you can start building into a talk!


6:30 - 7:00 - Networking

7:00 - 8:50 - Workshop

8:50 - 9:00 - Closing Time
