Webinar - Public speaking, with a focus on BA Conference Europe 

Have you considered public speaking? It can be a challenge but the benefits are broad, extending across many areas such as career growth, personal development, and inspiring others.

The call for speakers has been made for Business Analysis Conference Europe 2019. We are running this webinar to provide an insight into what it is like to speak at such a conference, including the specifics for preparing to speak at the BA Conference. We have a conference organising committee member who will provide guidance on what the selection panel look for, and what steps help to ensure the talk is well received by the attendees. We also have a regular conference speaker, providing an insight from the perspective of a speaker. We will allow plenty of time for audience questions.

If you are considering public speaking for the first time, or want to submit a talk for the Business Analysis Conference Europe, this webinar will give you valuable insight. The deadline for submitting to speak is Friday 1st March. The speaker guidelines and registration can be accessed at Speaker Guidelines: Business Analysis Conference Europe.
