Quotes from past speakers:
“I was lucky enough to get a speaking spot at TechEd in Las Vegas last year. It was the first time I had been to a TechEd and it was an awesome experience. I highly recommend taking up the opportunity to share your story. I received a huge amount of support and encouragement and am so glad that I did it. It’s amazing how much you can help others by just sharing your experiences. Every experience is valuable.” – Tara Rosenzweig
“You don’t need to present on “newest stuff” to get accepted….It is also a great way for you to deepen your own personal understanding of a particular topic. Even though you may think you know a topic very well, it is amazing how building the presentations will force you to pick up every single detail as part of you research. ” – Stephen Johannes
