My career started as an IT Trainer late 1993’s and for about 10 years I delivered several classes ranging from Office end-users to programming languages but after my first certification as MCSE, I started delivering courses for the Microsoft Official Curriculum as an MCT.
I always loved public speaking and to share knowledge. There’s much you can share inside of a class room between teacher and students.
After a few years out of this area and by a lucky chance, I was offered the possibility of applying for some local event – i.e. local usergroup meetups and SQL Saturday – and then it begun the new journey of public speaking at events. For the past 7 years I’ve spoken at several events and love to do it!
Since then I’ve also joined TEDxPorto (www.tedxporto.com), our local TEDx chapter, to help organize an event with +1300 attendees each year and I love it!
What I can do for you:
- Help you getting started at your local events;
- Help reviewing your materials and give you some pointers how to start building them;
- Help you avoid some common mistakes like trying to crack some jokes…
What I cannot do for you:
- Make all your demos work! But do you really need them?!?!? 😉
