Shout outs!


TOPIC 1 - MozTechSpeakers updates

  • Phase 2 Summer Pilot: facilitator (Manel/Laka/Ioana ( i am missign this call unfortunatelly) /Rabimba?) + Amine (participant) , + other participants on call
  • 41 of our Tech Speaker “Ducklings” went through the Phase 2 training program. Participants were broken into regional groups and facilitated by 18 full-fledged Tech Speakers who guided their meetings, labs, and coursework. (Michael)
  • Manel as a faciliator sharing her experience on participating on the program, how to couch, how to help them prepare and many more things
  • Amine: one of the greatest experience in Mozilla, if you want to apply tips: have your slides prepared, we’ve learned on how to make our presentation more interesting. We also saw how professionals are talking
  • Berlin Tech Speaker Meetup: What we accomplished. Summary. - Rabimba
  • 25 of our current Tech Speakers (nearly 100%) converged on Berlin for the first-ever Tech Speakers Meet-Up. While in Berlin, Tech Speakers practiced their presentation skills, received one-on-one feedback from an industry expert, created template decks for future Tech Speakers to use, authored bio summaries, refilled their SWAG arsenals, and received an insider-scoop on what’s in the pipeline for Firefox.
  • 19 Tech Speakers stayed in Berlin after the Meet-Up to lend their services to the View Source Team (an even 20, if you add me). For many Tech Speakers, this was an excellent way to put their newly acquired skills and learnings to the test in a real-world-environment. At View Source, Tech Speakers filed volunteer slots, took to the main stage for Ignite Talks, led discussion panels, hosted breakout sessions, and staffed demo booths. Feedback from event staff was a glowing praise of everyone’s hard-work and dedication.
  • Ramimba: the whole experience have been talking on tech events about Mozilla longs before the program so it’s all about helping them becoming better and scaling
  • Next round of Phase 2 & Future plans: high level roadmap/dates for next instance of Phase 2, Michael on tracking and leveling up (proposed)
  • Phase 2 Summer Pilot status: survey completion/CFP homework review in progress, to wrap up in the next 1-2 weeks.
  • Application for next version of Phase 2 to open in 2016 for a session in Q1 2017. Format and requirements tbd based on feedback from the summer pilot.
  • Michael Ellis is lead on all Tech Speaker event support and speaker funding requests. Will work w/new tech speakers on processes and reporting requirements.
  • Discourse is where you can see announcements.
  • Can you share information such as the application, with me once it’s ready? I’ll share it with the Social Champions! I’m sure that this is something they would be interested in. -Sierra
