Agile in Action: New Speakers Workshop
Zach Bonaker

The first step to sharing your wisdom, experience, and knowledge at a conference like Agile 2022 is getting your speaking and workshop ideas accepted by organizers. The key to acceptance is a compelling proposal!

In this workshop designed for people new to speaking and conference submissions, you learn to step through a structured method for creating an effective, concise proposal. Beginning with simple ways to formulate session topics, through designing abstracts and learning objectives, you gain the know-how to generate an impressive proposal which stands out from the crowd.


Target Audience:

people new to speaking who feel unsure of how to start, people looking to refine and improve their existing ideas which have been unsuccessful in the submission process

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what increases the appeal of a conference session proposal.
  • Use a step-wise process for taking an idea to an attractive proposal.
  • Create a draft containing all elements to get a head start for submitting in 2023.
  • Network and form a peer support system to assist with feedback.
