Webinar – Strategies for Successful Conference Talks

The recording for our free livestream, Strategies for Successful Conference Talks, is now available on YouTube. In addition you can view the slides here.


No matter how accustomed you are to it, presenting at a conference is always stressful. Many potential speakers find that worry and doubt prevent them from submitting that all important first talk. However, there are strategies that can help relieve this anxiety and greatly improve your odds of success. Garth Gilmour has been organising and presenting at conferences for over 20 years, mentoring first-time speakers for almost as long. In this webinar, he shares his top tips for success and discusses how to be prepared for whatever life throws at you on the day.
