You don’t need to picture people in their underwear to get up on stage and share what you know. You do, however, need to have a compelling idea along with a well-written abstract and a well-structured, well-prepared presentation in order to give the talk you–and your audience–deserve.
Show up with 5 minutes of a presentation and learn from seasoned professionals who have seen their fair share of stages. We’ll provide you with a safe, welcoming environment and help you by providing valuable and actionable feedback that will help you level-up your presentation game.
We can help with that. Come learn with us!
These fantastic sponsors are helping us bring this great event to you.
Samantha Starmer and Russ Unger, both Cranky Talk Faculty alums, have created a single-day curriculum to help guide you from idea to the stage. Bring your best ideas and learn how to put them to work for you!
Russ Unger is an Experience Design Director for GE Capital Americas where he leads teams and projects in design and research . He is co-author of the book “A Project Guide to UX Design,” “Designing the Conversation,” and the forthcoming Speaker Camp for Peachpit Press (Voices That Matter). Russ is also working on a book on guerrilla design and research methods that is due out well, sometime.
Russ is also co-founder of Chicago Camps, which hosts low-cost, high-value technology events in the Chicago area, and he is also on the Advisory Board for the Department of Web Design and Development at Harrington College of Design. Russ has 2 daughters who both draw better than he does and are currently beginning to surpass his limited abilities in coding.
We are assembling an all-star staff of brilliant staff members to help guide, coach, and mentor you along through the day. They’re bringing their skills and talents to share with you and help you learn from their experiences.
We are still fine-tuning the curriculum to make sure we can give you the best possible Speaker Camp Atlanta. Please stay tuned to learn more about the full day schedule, which includes brainstorming your ideas, understanding abstract structure and format, crafting your abstract, and much, much more!
