I’m Brian Vecci, Technical Evangelist at Varonis, and This is How I Work

Episode Summary

If you’ve ever seen Technical Evangelist Brian Vecci present, his passion for Varonis is palpable. He makes presenting look effortless and easy, but as we all know excellence requires a complete devotion to the craft. I recently spoke to him to gain insight into his work and to shed light on his process as a presenter. “When I first started presenting for Varonis, I’d have the presentation open on one half of the screen and Evernote open on the other half and actually write out every word I was going to say for each slide,” said Brian. From there, he improvises from the script. “I’d often change things up while presenting based on people’s reactions or questions, but the process of actually writing everything out first made responding and reacting and changing the presentation a lot easier. I still do that, especially for new presentations.”
