From the start, this group was created for people who want to sharpen their public speaking skills by learning from one another and by practicing IRL (or virtually) at various events! With that in mind …
We have a challenge for you - the Speaker Bench Challenge! We want to incentivize people to join the Speaker Bench so they can mentor newer speakers + share their experiences with members and sign up to speak at an Atlassian Community Event to enhance their public speaking skills. We’ve heard from Community Leaders that they’d love more speakers at their community events and we’ve heard from Speaker Bench members that they want more speaking opportunities. So, we’re here to help you out.
It wouldn’t be a challenge without a prize. Here’s what you can earn!:
A Speaker Kit (this includes a ring light and microphone)
Anyone who is a member of the Speaker Bench group and confirmed to speak at an Atlassian Community Event will be sent a Speaker Kit
How long will the challenge last?
The challenge starts on October 1, 2021 and ends on December 31, 2021
How do I get involved?
Join this group! (Speaker Bench) and then...
Sign up to speak at an upcoming Atlassian Community Event https://ace.atlassian.com/events/
Note: All cities (even without an upcoming event) can be found under 'Regions' on ace.atlassian.com.
Can Atlassians participate?
Yes! The Community loves hearing directly from Atlassian.
Can Community Leaders participate?
Yes! We ask that you speak at a chapter that you're not a Leader of (example: if you're a Leader in Austin, TX, you won't earn a Speaker Kit if you speak at your own event)
How do I get in contact with a Community Leader who hosts events?
How do I get a ring light and microphone?
Anyone who is confirmed to speak at an Atlassian Community Event will be sent a Speaker Kit (pictured above). Fill out this form if you’re speaking at an upcoming ACE so we have the most up-to-date shipping information.
Don't forget: you’ll need to provide the event URL from ace.atlassian.com on the form.
We're so excited to kick off this challenge and see more speakers at Atlassian Community Events! As always, let me know if you have any questions.
