Episode 2 - A Practical Guide to Speaking at Conferences, with Johanna Rothman



For the second episode, I had the honor to talk with Johanna Rothman on the topic of Speaking at Conferences, tips and tricks on it and how to become a better one. She recently wrote the book of "Write a Conference Proposal the Conference Wants and Accepts". We discussed the book as well. If you are thinking of starting your speaking journey, I recommend to listen to the show and highly recommend to read her book.
