Speaking opportunities


#1

We need to find more places to go and talk about what we’ve done. For instance, I did a talk at Horsham Skeptics and would be happy to take that on the road a bit more to other similar groups. Any suggestions, pop them in here and we can create linked topics to follow up the promising ones.


#2

I’ve asked Horsham Skeptics if they can introduce me to other groups across the network, assuming they have some way of sharing speakers around…


#3

I have just emailed the [email protected] about a potential speaking opportunity which may interest you.


#4

I’ve had a look around, and most events that could interest us happened late last year and second editions are yet to be announced for them. I’ll still keep my eyes out though.


#5

Sceptics in the Pub are all over the place so we can follow our local to try and get involved.

Republic and Democracy Club would be good too.

Good news - I’m speaking at Parliament’s “exploring digital” series next Tuesday at 11am. It’s an internal event only, but speaking on this stuff literally inside the corridors of power is pretty cool :slight_smile:

I’ve had another talk accepted at a major open source event, which is great. Can’t announce publicly yet (and of course this is a public forum) until they open registration, but it’ll be good :slight_smile:


#8

So I can announce it now - I’ll be speaking at OSCON on the 18th October: http://conferences.oreilly.com/oscon/open-source-eu/public/schedule/detail/53023

I’ve submitted a session proposal to MozFest. Submission is here.
