Speaker Camp Chicago

Speaker Camp helps you get ready to present at conferences. Spend your Saturday with us and get prepared to get on stage and show your smarts!

You don’t need to picture people in their underwear to get up on stage and share what you know. You do, however, need to have a compelling idea along with a well-written abstract and a well-structured, well-prepared presentation in order to give the talk you–and your audience–deserve.

You’ve Got A Lot To Say. People Deserve to Hear It.

Show up with 5 minutes of a presentation and learn from seasoned professionals who have seen their fair share of stages. We’ll provide you with a safe, welcoming environment and help you by providing valuable and actionable feedback that will help you level-up your presentation game.

We can help with that. Come learn with us!

Get Ready to Get on Stage

You’ll learn from the experts! Get ready for your conference debut by learning:

  • Brainstorming Your Big Idea
  • How to Write Your Bio
  • How to Write Your Proposal & Abstract
  • Critique Proposals & Abstracts
  • Presentation Tips & Techniques
  • Recorded Live Presenting in Front of an Audience with Actionable Feedback
