Let's Start With A Story


Firstly: Prepare!

And remember, it's not just about reeling off the boilerplate.

It's how you tell 'em! ...


  • Think how you can tell it like a story
  • With beginning, middle and end
  • Seasoned with a bit of humor
  • Keeping the meat for the middle (examples, data, substance)

Secondly: Practice!

  • Allow time for it
  • Video record practice sessions
  • Critically review them immediately after. Then repeat!
  • Invite feedback from a colleague, mentor or coach
  • Formally rehearse (ideally in the room you will speak in)
  • Get familiar with the location and the tech involved (slide operation, screen/s, microphone?)
