Many experienced speakers have declared that they are done with speaking at conferences, meetups or events. I really miss some of them.
I have pondered that possibility, especially during COVID times, but I realized that I can’t turn off that switch!
Sometimes I can slow down my speaking engagements, but attending and speaking at conferences is the fuel for my job, even when my job was not related to public speaking anymore.
Preparing for a session is the best way for me to go deeper on a technology, I cannot simply “try and use it because I need it”, I must “try and go deeper because I must talk about that”.
So, if you were hoping to stop seeing me at the conferences… It’s not the right time!
