SMBMTL 17 – Fred Harper

Guest Speaker: Fred Harper

Public Speaking? No, thanks! 

Please note that the event will be held in English.

Craig SIlverman, Social Media Breakfast Montreal

In the IT world for more than 10 years, Frédéric Harper started as a developer working with different technologies focusing on Web, and mobile development. One day, Frédéric got a revelation, and decided to use his social skills to become an Evangelist. He spent a few years showing the Openness of Microsoft talking about Open Source, Web standards, and Interoperability.

Now, as a Senior Technical Evangelist at Mozilla, Fred shares his passion about the Open Web, and helps developers be successful with Firefox OS. Experienced speaker, t-shirt wearer, long-time blogger, passionate hugger, and HTML5 lover, Fred lives in Montréal, and speaks Frenglish. Always conscious about the importance of unicorns and gnomes, you can read about these topics, and other thoughts at outofcomfortzone.net.

You may think that public speaking isn’t for you, but you’d be wrong. Do you have a passion? Do you like to share with others? Public speaking will help you spread the love in your industry, and help others find success. But let’s be honest: you’ll get a lot out of it too. You’ll learn from attendees, grow your network, get visibility, and much more in return for your efforts. Let’s explore why there are good opportunities for you, how to set and achieve your goals, and where can you start. Who knows, you may have a born public speaker hidden inside of you!
