Well I was lucky enough to be at both Teched in Orlando last week and also at Teched I.T. Forum Last November. One of the things that really put a smile on my face in both places was the speaker Idol contest. Last November a friend of mine Ilse Van Criekinge won speaker idol contest @ Teched I.T. Forum, which was a great result for all technical females as on 3% of the attendees were girls. Now last week the girls won it again !. Rhonda Layfield won Speaker Idol in Orlando !. This means that both girls will have a speaker slot at the next respective Techeds which is a highly sort after prize.
Congratulations to both girls you really have set a wonderful example to aspiring Women in Technology.
