Welcome to the voxgig newsletter for tech speakers, 30 Mar 2018

This week i’d like to introduce the topic of pre-talk nerves and anxiety. I’m sure this topic will make more than one appearance in our newsletter as it is asked about quite often.

The excellent post below was written by Cate Huston and was first published on her blog last June here. Cate is the co-founder of the Technically Speaking newsletter and speaks internationally on mobile development and tech culture. Her writing has featured in The Daily BeastLifehacker and Be Leaderly to name but a few.

Should you play guitar during your talk?

This is a serious question! If you’ve got the talent, why not use it? Your talk will certainly be “talked about”.

Now, I’m not entirely a fan of gimmicks when it comes to conference talks. For one thing, your audience is there to listen to your technical wisdom, not your party piece. For another, part of the skill of public speaking is to engage the audience with your voice and your presence only.
