Make the ChefConf 2020 CFP Part of Your 2020 #goals

Happy New Year ChefFriends! Our ChefConf 2020 CFP is well underway, and we wanted to make sure we hear from YOU!

You have until January 31 to submit your ideas. 

Is speaking at more conferences part of your New Year’s Resolutions? Or maybe becoming a better public speaker is a 2020 goal? ChefConf 2020 is the perfect place to improve your speaking skills. All speakers at ChefConf have the opportunity to work with our speaker coach, Anna. Have your professional speaking questions answered and practice with a pro. We run office hours with our speakers to help them organize their talks and make ChefConf the best experience for speakers and attendees. All speakers for ChefConf Seattle and London are welcome!

We encourage folks who are new to speaking to submit their talks, as well as folks who have done this so many times they’ve lost count. Hone your craft with us. Last year we covered some interesting topics in our office hours to help our speakers:

  • General Advice for New Speakers. We have had some talented veteran speakers at ChefConf, and they shared their knowledge with our new speakers.
  • Speaking with a Partner. Giving talks with multiple speakers can be challenging, but also helps folks who are nervous about speaking. 
  • Giving a Great Demo. Lots of our breakout sessions feature technical demos, so getting your demo rock-solid is important. 
  • Making Best Use of Slides. Slides are kind of like art. You know good ones when you see them, but how do you make yours better?

So submit your topic to our Call for Presentations! Find out more about ChefConf 2020 on the ChefConf website. Make 2020 your year to become a better speaker.

If you have any other questions, we’d be happy to answer them at chefconf@chef.io or join #chefconf2020 on our Community Slack. See you in June in Seattle or London!
