Speaker Mentoring
BSides Melbourne will once again be offering a mentoring program for speakers specifically those who sign up for the Rookie / N00b track. You can also request a mentor for the general track if you would like that little bit of extra help or support.

Our goal is to remove the barriers that would prevent someone from submitting their work, and to equip those individuals with the skills they need to successfully present their information.

If you would like a mentor, please include this request when you submit your paper. Please note ALL speakers in the Rookie track will be paired with a coach.
By submitting your talk you agree to the following:

* Your talk will clearly detail concepts, ideas, findings, and solutions; be objective, and discuss open source approaches where applicable
* Your talk will not include any product or vendor-related pitches
* Talks must only be submitted by researchers/speakers. Absolutely no submissions from PR firms/marketing representatives.
* Employer logo on two slides only: The Introduction and Biography/Who Am I.
