Thanks Kim!

I've actually gone from surviving conferences to actively getting involved, so I totally understand what it feels like to be out of my comfort zone, yet comfortable. Great article 💜

Being a speaker at conferences, just like you have clearly expressed, takes away the pressure of engaging in small talks. Very true!

A good example is Rachel Onoja, a GDG community lead, and an introvert. Here is an article, Introvert In The Workplace: Becoming The Best You, where she recounts her experience speaking at the Women Tech Makers (WTM) Sub Saharan Africa Annual Summit alongside the Google Developers Group Summit.

It is a great read too.
