Reason for being involved in workshop: While public speaking can be a terrifying experience to begin with, it can be extremely rewarding. When I started doing talks, I had a load of great support and feedback. I'd love to be able to pay it forward and help others. I particularly would love to help encourage underrepresented groups as the broader the range of folks giving talks means that we get a broader range of viewpoints.
Reason for being involved in workshop: I don't want speaking at a conference to be reserved for "celebrities" and "10x programmers". It's a vital contribution back to the community, to share good ideas for a common good. If you have done good work, the world should hear about it. Reaching out to people helps find those ideas.
