Reason for being involved in workshop: I organise a meetup, a conference and help with a bunch of one off events (through Waracle) which all involve giving people an opportunity to take to the stage. This sounds like a great opportunity to help more people feel prepared and confident enough to give public speaking a go!

About Emma: Software tester at Waracle
Reason for being involved in workshop: Everyone has their talent. I was never good at drawing, dancing or sitting still... but the magic of words captivated me. It led me to become a journalist, a marketer, a teacher, and now a digital scribe. I want these skills to be available to everyone. That is why I give my time.
About Niall: I'm often called a marketing unicorn, due to my love for both numbers and words. Hidden in the digital mist like a mythological creature, I analyse data sets to discover trends that influence my strategies. We live in a digital age, and everything is constantly changing. Experiencing real-time feedback from tweaks, optimisation, and brand new content, is a thrill I assume others receive from jumping out of a plane. Flowing words, flipping sentences, and framing ideas are all easily achievable with a dynamic theoretical framework. Creating content, public speaking, and story times don't need to be anxiety inducing, and I am always glad to ease that burden by passing on a few simple tips and tricks.
