How did you get into public speaking Angie, what advice do you have for a beginner like me?
I started with blogging first. It helped me gain experience and confidence with explaining technical topics.
Next, look into speaking internally at work. Lunch and learn type of vibe where maybe you explain some new tool or technique.
Local meetups are also a great way to begin public speaking. Not as scary as a conference. Record this if you can.
Once you've done these things, you have some experience and hopefully video showing that you're a speaker. This will help when applying to speak at conferences.
