It seems like J-Fall 2024 is still far away, but the call for papers will open soon and we are looking for new talent!

Have you secretly always wondered what it would be like to be a speaker? But you’re not an expert on anything or you don’t have a clue what to speak about? Then here’s the thing for you: The NLJUG Speaker Academy 2024! Last years it has been a huge success and some of the attendees are now speaking regularly at (international) events.

We have a number of speakers in our program committee who have many international conferences under their belt, who will help you come up with a subject and prepare to submit. Besides that they will give you tips & tricks so you can live up to your full potential.

Then for the people who get selected (or those wanting to submit their new proposal to other conferences) we will offer the opportunity to review your presentation to improve it.

This program is open to all people who are interested in public speaking, regardless of their experience. The first meeting will be on June 27th in Utrecht.
