About this event

About Women Talk Design Speaker Stories

There isn’t one singular path to public speaking. Folks decide to speak for a variety of reasons, get started in different ways, and have their own techniques for preparing for talks and dealing with nerves.

Learn about the journeys and experiences of incredible women and nonbinary speakers with our new series: Women Talk Design Speaker Stories. Join us each week as we interview one of our speakers to learn the topics they are currently speaking about and why, how they find speaking opportunities, their advice for getting started with public speaking, and more.

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your own questions and connect with folks from the Women Talk Design community. We hope you’ll leave inspired to share your own ideas and experiences, and get out there and speak.

Stick around after the conversation for breakout discussions. During this time you can connect with other people in the Women Talk Design community and discuss what you learned.

Agenda

  • 5 minutes | Welcome
  • 20 minutes | Conversation with Alba Villamil
  • 20 minutes | Audience Q&A
  • 15 minutes | Breakout conversations

Come with your questions! We’ll see you soon.
