"Engage, Entertain, Educate: Technical Speaking that Works" is a one-day
workshop lead by Andrei Alexandrescu, Kate Gregory, and Scott Meyers. It is offered at the Meydenbauer Conference Center from 9AM to 5PM on Sunday, September 22nd. Lunch is included.

Because each participant will be given time to give short presentations, size is strictly limited.

# Course Description

Successful technical talks require more than just mastery of the topic at
hand. They also demand a strong stage presence, a memorable delivery,
effective audience management, clear presentation materials, comfort with the environment (e.g., mics, stages, screens), and an ability to cope with the unexpected. This workshop, led by three of the most storied speakers in C++, lets you strut your stuff in several short presentations. After each, you’ll receive specific feedback on how your stuff-strutting can be improved.

For speakers at CppCon, the utility of the workshop should be obvious, but anyone giving (or aspiring to give) good technical presentations will benefit from this session.

Further information is available at https://cppcon.org/engage-entertain-educate/.

For individuals whose organization requires it, a certificate of completion is available for this event. For information contact registrar@cppcon.org.
