Be an Expert, Become a Speaker!

Be a champion! Get Noticed! Would you like to become an “EXPERT” in your chosen field?

One of the best ways to start this process is to speak at a public forum.  Get some recognition as a resource / SME. Become more valuable to your company!


You’ll have to get prepared. Here are some must-do items:

  • Prepare a speakers Bio
  • Have a quality professional  “headshot” available
  • Develop an engaging speech, and practice so that you can present at any occasion. It is a bit like an actor learning a part.
  • Make yourself available as a “fill-in” speaker if needed. Event managers really appreciate your flexibility.
  • If you want to practice speaking with great constructive feedback, join a local TOASTMASTERS club, or a virtual one, this is a new feature of the club.

Here is a call for speakers:

JMP® users are lifelong learners.

At each Discovery Summit, our paper and ePoster presenters are some of our best teachers. They are a source of inspiration to learn more, including new ways to analyze data, the latest techniques for statistical modeling and innovative applications of the software. Will you teach us about how you use analytics in your field? Submit a paper or ePoster abstract describing how you’ve solved real problems with JMP. If yours is selected, you’ll present at the conference, which will take place 23-26 Oct. at SAS headquarters.
