On June 20-21, I will be enjoying bratwurst and beer in Lingen, Germany – while speaking at DataGrillen 2019!
I’m so happy and thankful to be a part of this event again. Last year, when it was called SQLGrillen, there were a total of 35 sessions. This year, the event has grown to 50 sessions over 2 days! More time to learn and network, yay :)
DataGrillen 2019 Schedule
I will be presenting my session Uhms and Bunny Hands: Tips for Improving Your Presentation Skills on Friday, June 21st. This is a fun session to present, because I will show you all the presentation mistakes I’ve made over the years so you can learn what NOT to do :) I will also share tips on how to craft your session to help your attendees remember your key messages, how to prepare for demo failures and worst-case scenarios, and how to build confidence as a new speaker.
Newcomer Track at DataGrillen 2019
Like last year, there is a dedicated Newcomer Track. Five speakers will get the chance to present at a conference for the first time! These are the newcomer speakers at DataGrillen 2019:
- John McCormack (@actualjohn)
- Will Velida (@willvelida)
- Dirk Hondong (@DirkHondong)
- Rune Ovlien Rakeie (@runeo34)
- Jeroen Bosems (@JBosems)
Each newcomer was assigned a mentor to help them prepare for their session. I have been helping my coworker Jeroen over the last few months, and it has been great following his journey and watch his session get better and better. He will be kicking off the Newcomer Track on Thursday, June 20th with Applying Agile in Business Intelligence. I’m more excited about his session than mine ;)
