I was 9 when I learnt to code on a commodore 64, on 2001 I graduated in Computer Science at University of Venice and since a decade I relocated to London. I worked as Senior Developer for companies like Yoox, Asos, Itv, 7Digital and I founded Pantry Ace, award winning startup in foodtech. Software craftsman, entrepreneur, lean thinker, restless traveller, philosopher - all blended with Venetian humour!
I used to. That is, until I researched and practiced the art of speaking. In this talk, I'll share several things you can do to deal with the fear of giving presentations and improve your speaking skills.

Or at the very least, you'll be less likely to bore your audience to death!
