Rating: 5 of 5

Want to make an impact in your community, but don't know how, or feel like you don't have time? You're not alone. Luckily, there are a number of ways you can use your tech-industry skills to create positive change in your community - and yourself! (Fun fact: volunteers live longer and make more money than those who don't volunteer.) In this talk, we'll look at the why's, the how's, and the where's for sharing our skills. You'll learn more about the breadth of ways to give back - both technical and non-technical - and hopefully leave feeling empowered to reach out in your own community and start making connections.

Hilary is an engaging speaker who shows passion for her topic. Her slides were excellent, reinforcing what she was presenting. She is knowledgable about her topic and "lives it" in real life. I recommend her talk.

Fantastic talk on how to get involved using our tech skills to volunteer. I really appreciated the statistics regarding how volunteering does us a lot of good as well as others. Hilary is a very dynamic and motivating speaker!
