At your time here both at UW and beyond, you will have to present your technical work. However, technical talks are often times overwhelming - and so we're here to help! We've invited Tia Over, Partner at The Matthews Group, to present her talk "5 Top Tips for Tech Talks". She presented a similar version of this talk at WE Local Portland, which we thought was absolutely fabulous, and so we invited her to present this talk to you all :)

Summary of Talk Topic
Top Tips for Tech Talks: Delivering an engaging and memorable presentation can be hard, especially when it’s a technical one. We’ll make it easier by covering 5 tips for doing it better – focusing on how to get your audience to join with you, choosing the right level of content, the power in “remove to improve” and nonverbal communication, and leaving your audience with an action plan.
