Tonight I did my first Ignite talk. An ignite talk lasts 5 minutes, you have 20 slides and the slides automatically change every 15 seconds. It was quite a challenge for me as I’m used to moving the slides on when I’m ready and waffling quite a lot!
was giving my What Agile Is To Me ignite talk for Norwich Startups. I
was third on of three speakers and the two previous speakers, who spoke
about Collaborative Consumption and Being Unforgettable were really
good. It was going really well until a picture was missing on two of my
slides. A quick stumble, edit and resume and I was back on track asking
the audience to imagine the picture.
really like to get to the point where I can do these fluently without a
script and each slide has exactly 15 seconds of speaking that flows one
into the next. More practice I think!
