1.2.4 Start work on your talk

Described image
Figure 9

Earlier this week you decided on a subject for your talk. Now you need to start assembling ideas for your talk.

Your talk should eventually be between 3 and 5 minutes long, so you probably don’t want to spend any more than a minute of that time on the introduction.

Using what you have learned in the course so far, think about your talk, the subject and the audience you are aiming it at. Will you need to introduce yourself? What sort of strategy will you use to get the talk going?

You don’t need to write a script for your introduction. The most important thing is to make notes on what your introduction is going to contain and how you will link your ideas together.

Spend some time now practising what you want to say in your introduction, out loud.
