The Rookie Track : coming to BruCON

BruCON are pleased to announce that this year they’ll be running a
Rookie Track to help assist new speakers give their first security talk
at this year’s conference.

The "Rookie Track" concept was born at BSides London this year and it
brought interesting concept by new speakers to the audience. It created a
venue where new speakers could step on the stage and present. We thought
it was awesome and we think the concept would be great fit for BruCON.

The Rookie Track format will be a 15 minute talk of a Rookie’s choosing,
on any subject they would like to talk about.  Spaces are limited so get
in touch with us now and have a chat with us.

The idea is a simple one, we pair a Rookie with a Mentor.  Our mentors
have had the experience of giving conference talks before and will be
there to help you bounce ideas of, give their opinion of your slides,
and most importantly be there on the day to give you a little moral
support.  The one thing they won’t do is write your talk for you.  This
is a fantastic opportunity to talk about something your interested in,
share your thoughts, and get your first conference talk under your belt.

For more information drop an email to

Currently we’re looking for Mentors too!

If you have given a number of talks before in the past and think you
could help someone who has never spoken before some advice, support, and
encouragement then drop us a line and let us know.  Your assistance is
greatly appreciated.
