Public speaking Workshop

This workshop will teach you the skills you need to feel confident whether you’re pitching an investor, proposing a project to a client, or getting up on stage at a conference or meet up. Learning how to thrive in the spotlight is an essential part of taking your career to the next level.

In the morning session, students will learn the basics of creating a compelling presentation. They’ll learn how to understand their audience to ensure what they’re saying doesn’t fall on deaf ears.

In the afternoon session, students will explore the basics of using gestures, body language, motion, and their voice to be better communicators. They’ll also learn techniques to encourage confidence in front of an audience. There’s plenty of opportunity to practise. It’s not just theory.

Because our community is always in need of a diverse selection of voices, if you feel you’re a member of any under-represented group in our industry, Jeff has agreed to pay your tuition himself. Please contact [email protected] for more details.

The full ticket price is 100 Euro and all proceeds will be donated to a charity organization.

Bio Jeff Watkins is an iOS developer living with his daughter and four cats on beautiful Bainbridge Island, Washington. In the past he’s been an itinerant Javascript teacher with his fingers stained by dry erase markers. He lost his fear of public speaking in front of standing room only audiences of more than a thousand fellow engineers. He prefers speaking on non-technical topics at more intimate venues now. His mission is to help make public speaking a common part of the engineer’s toolkit.

Unconscious Bias

Presenter: Inka Kretschmer
Date: Wednesday 29th May
Location: BetaHaus Neukölln, Harzer Straße 39, Berlin 12059
Time: 11:00 am
Duration: 2 h

Unconscious Bias Workshop Everyone talks about the benefits of diversity and inclusion in our ever so fast-moving world. But what do we actually mean by diversity? What does an inclusive workplace look like? And more importantly, what gets in the way of us building an inclusive culture?

These are the questions we’ll explore in this interactive session. You’ll learn about unconscious bias as well as the impact it has on you and your decision-making. In the second half of the session, we’ll explore practical actions for taking a more inclusive approach and what difference we can bring to our (working) environment.

The number of participants is limited to 30 and you can get your ticket here. We are offering this workshop on a PWYW basis and recommend 30 Euros per person. All proceeds will be donated to charity.
