Speaker Prep Day

Welcome to ATD’s Speaker Prep Day!

Use our workshop to help you deliver your best talk here at ATD2018. You don’t need to be a speaker to join in – perhaps you’ll plan for something at ATD2019!

We’ll do drop-in sesssions in the morning, and more-strcutured sessions in the afternoon.
