There are two main things I’ve learnt since starting up Make Me A Speaker!:

  1. Write/talk what you know
  2. You need to invest in becoming a speaker, much as you would anything else

As a result, you can see me speaking this Friday at the latest Refresh Edinburgh event.
I’ll be talking about Geek Project Management, which is a topic I feel pretty comfortable speaking on. Although it’ll be similar to the session I did at BarCampLondon2, I’ve got a bit more time and so I’ll be going into more details of how to run a successful project without getting overwhelmed by loads of useless documents and meetings.

Which brings me to the other thing I’ll be talking about to everyone over the next couple of days: we’re in the process of setting up the first BarCampNorthEast as well, so sign up if you’re interested!

UPDATE: Talk is done — if you weren’t able to make it and would like to check out the slides, you can download them from here.
