Thanks for this! You might want to use tutorials tag instead of 101 and speaking instead of public speaking, just so it hits people who follow those common tags.
Loved the comparison of time lengths.
One of the things I've noticed about me is that I tend to do broad surface level talks introducing a variety of tools for people to gain awareness in and learn more independently.
I'm also understanding that excitement, energy, and interactivity need to be calibrated for the event and the time of day if giving a conference talk. I've got a talk in 30 days and change that I just discovered will carry the 8 AM timeslot. I now need to make it a LOT more engaging than I would a 10 AM talk.
Thank you for the tag advice!
Yes that's so true. The context of a talk is everything and learning to properly adjust is a skill!
Thank you for sharing your process. I just yesterday ran a lecture that perhaps was too packed and so your post helps me self-reflect. Thank you!
Glad you enjoyed! Hope it's helpful!
