Show Notes

Conferences are a substantial investment of time and money. However, as our guests Emma Weber and JD Dillon assert, they can be extremely valuable for professional development. We chat with Emma and JD about how they think about conferences and what they do before, during and after a conference to get the most out of the event that they can. Listen out for the similarities and differences in their approach and figure out what will work best for you.
If you are interested in getting started with speaking at conferences we encourage you to be brave and give it a go. After all, Learning Uncut is all about sharing stories and conferences are a great forum to do this. Emma and JD provide tips for preparing conference submissions to help get you started.
