Any horror stories to make me less worried about my first talk?

No horror stories, but remember:

  • You don't need (and shouldn't have to be) an expert to give a talk
  • People will be genuinely interested in what you have to say
  • You will have an impact on people beyond those who tell you
  • Diversity of thought and opinion is important. That includes people who haven't spoken in public before.
