People & Culture

Have you ever attended a conference and wished you could be one of the speakers presenting? Maybe you think that you don't have anything to say or that you'd never have the courage to present in public.

In this short talk, Paula will answer some questions on what a "Call for Proposals" actually is, how to go about finding one that is the right fit for you and how you should approach it. She'll share some of her experiences and provide some simple advice that will help guide the audience through the process.
