My First "Zen" Presentation

I think it went well. It was scary, but once I started talking it was OK. Couple of things I found:

  • I easily remembered what slide was about what, but I didn’t always remember how I wanted to formulate what I was saying.
  • The slides weren’t balanced – some of them were up for longer than others.
  • Mostly I had a slide per point, I had two points I wanted make on one slide, and I think that was a mistake. Keep it one point per slide.

    Thanks for reaching out! I know I’m going to learn a ton from you too. =)

    Don’t worry about not getting the words right. Practice talking about the topics in conversations, e-mail, and blog posts, and you’ll get the important phrases nailed down. Everything else is flexible.

    Balance and pace are also flexible. Varying tempo is fine.

    One point per slide is good, though. It forces clarity of message.

    Good luck, have fun, and keep improving!
