MASH – Mentor and Speaker Hub
The whole is greater than the sum of its partsAristotle
You know something.
We all know something.
None of us can know everything.
Sharing what we know makes us all much better at what we do than if we all sit alone. Sharing knowledge goes in all directions, not just from expert to novice. You – yes, you – have unique knowledge gained from your unique experiences. Even the expert may gain insight from your experiences.
Facilitation of knowledge sharing in our tech world is often in communities – formal or informal. In the Oracle world many countries and states have Oracle User Groups (OUGs) dedicated to serving the community.
OUGs and other networking groups arrange conferences and webinars where some of us do presentations about what we have learned from working with our tech, so that others may learn more than what they could have learned alone. Everybody has something they can share to the benefit of others – there’s only a difference in degree that the most experienced have most to share, but we all learn from all.
You can be an active part in your community without speaking, but becoming a speaker adds an extra dimension to your network. Sharing your knowledge will add a lot to your own knowledge – researching your chosen topic makes you dive deeper into the topic, but also attendees to your session will often chime in with details you haven’t found yourself.
There are a lot of good arguments for you to become a tech speaker – even if you think you are not an expert, you most certainly are in some topic that will help others. And nothing beats having someone tell you after the session that it has been very helpful and educational.
