From 5:30 - 8:30 pm on Day 1 of Big Data World 2019, Techerati and Funny Women present workshops, a panel discussion and stand-up comedy on diversity and inclusion in technology...
Humour and confidence for women in tech.
Technology has always been associated with masculinity. It’s time to change the narrative and acknowledge the contribution that women have made to technological advancement. To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, CloserStill Media has joined forces with leading comedy experts Funny Women, to create Techerati HERlarious, an immersive event comprising of workshops, a panel discussion and comedy.
Funny Women has been helping women to perform, write and do business with humour since 2002, and the aim of Techerati HERlarious is to help boost female confidence and improve visibility and impact for women in the workplace, business and beyond.
Explore how to express your ideas more confidently and freely using some of the tried and tested tricks of the comedy trade, and get some insights and inspiration to build your career, start a business or reinvent yourself! Get valuable advice on how to ‘perform’, write great copy, bring your ideas to life and develop techniques to communicate more effectively. We will show you how to create your own ‘material’, tell your story and become more confident and memorable.
Men are welcome to attend and join in the workshops.
