Introduction

Now that you are a Jolter, you’re going to want to build a solid 45 minute talk, if you don’t already have one. 45 minutes might sound like a long time but it can really get away from you if you don’t plan right. Here are some guidelines that should help you get your presentation in shape.

  • Step n°1 |

    Choose the Right Topic 

    You have unique experience and industry expertise and this is why they have chosen your talk. But there’s no way you can cover your entire scope in 45 minutes. Choose one topic within your many possibilities — something not too broad, something catchy and relevant to today’s professionals and really stick to it.

    You can always build additional talks in your series (see our article on building a series of talks).

    Prepare from the Audience’s Perspective

    The biggest mistake speakers make is to start gathering data upon data and throwing something together that is interesting to them. The important people here are the audience members. So before you start gathering research, sit down and put yourself in your audience’s position — What are the questions they would ask? What is their level of knowledge about this topic?


    Make a list of all the questions you think they might ask, and then group them into 4 question types — for example: Why is what you have to tell me of value to me? How can I use the knowledge? Tell us of success stories? And How do I incorporate it into my work?
