Becoming A Presenter in the .NET World

Published on

I was asked to give a 30 minute high level talk on being a technical presenter in the .NET community for the first Presenter Mentor (http://presentermentor.org) meeting in Dallas. This was a lot of fun, I'm looking forward to seeing this group grow! Although I was speaking to a .NET centric crowd, the principals and concepts that I went in to briefly should be helpful to anyone thinking about doing a lot of presenting.
