Featured Presentation

Talk Tech To Me - Improving Your Technical Presentation Skills

Speaker: Alexander Arvidsson, Principal Solutions Architect Atea

Summary: Technical speakers are most often very good at the "technical" part of speaking but sometimes leave the "speaking" part with something to be desired. The body language may be stilted (or in some cases nonexistent), the voice can be a dull monotone or the font size can make the demos unreadable from more than five feet away. We have all been there - the technical content is great but the presenter just won't cut it. This session is for anyone who either is or aspires to become a technical speaker, and I will go through tips and techniques for better understanding and using body language, how to use your voice for maximum benefit and finally give some pointers, ideas and software tips to make sure your demos are as clear and readable as possible.

About Alexander: Alexander is a principal solutions architect at Atea in Linköping, Sweden. Nobody really knows what it means to be a principal solutions architect, but he spends his days helping clients of all shapes and sizes to take better care of their data. He has spent the last 20 years toying with databases and related infrastructure services such as storage, networking and virtualization, occasionally emerging from the technical darkness to attend a Star Wars convention somewhere in the world. He is a frequent international speaker, podcaster, blogger and a Microsoft Certified Trainer, focusing on SQL Server, Azure and Power BI.
