So for TEDx Liffey last night I was given 4 minutes to talk about being happy in business.
240 seconds is 4 minutes so I figured I’d do 8 X 30 second talking points. I started off by jotting down a few quick thoughts on some rough paper. Followed by some thoughts on two pages of notepaper. From that I wrote down the slide headers on a post-it.
After that I rewrote out all 8 points again. I then proceeded to read them out and time myself. Came out to be about 4 mins 10 seconds after a few read-throughs.
After that it was creating the slides which only used the text from the headers with the last slide taking lyrics from a Pogues song.
