I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.
I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.
Sydney Paul Mongers
I'm heading up to Sydney to present some training courses, and as it happens I'm lucky enough to have this coincide with the local Sydney.PM meeting. I got lucky and caught Sydney.PM the last time I was in Sydney, and also the time before that, and the one even earlier. Despite living in Melbourne, I consider Sydney.PM to be oen of my local perl user groups.
I'll be presenting at the upcoming meeting, with a slightly extended version of my Mind Control talk from SAGE-AU 2005. Attendance is free, so feel free to drop around if you're in the area.

At the heart of any good conference are its presenters. To learn new skills and discover new ideas are what conferences are all about at least that's what you tell your boss when you apply for funding. Presenting is a rewarding, and often prestigious activity, but some speakers seem to do it better than others.
Paul Fenwick shares his experiences of almost a decade of teaching and public speaking. Discover how to keep your audience's attention, how to improve your presentation techniques, and how to use mind control to get others to do your bidding.
