My segment on why YOU should propose a talk to a conference NOW! from J On The Beach 2018

Call for your first conference proposal

If you think you want to talk about something you are passionate about you are already a step further than 99%.

See for great resources on how to get started. Also check out this thread on Twitter.

Submit to conferences that cover travel expenses (#paytospeak)
and have a good Code of Conduct.

If they don’t, ask why!
