I watched this great session giving 'advice and guidance on becoming a speaker or volunteer' from SQLBits this year.
I felt humbled when I listened to the SQLBits session recording as I am named as an absolute legend for attending all 16 SQLBits and helping for over 8 years. I had never spoken, never presented or been involved in the public facing side of the conference. It is such a great feeling helping the conference be successful, helping others enjoy what working with data brings and being a part of the sqlfamily. Thanks to SQLBits for enabling me to be a part of such an amazing event for all of these years.
