It is all about the story, people want to hear a good story! This talk is what really inspired me to take a whack at speaking.
Couple ideas for getting started:
(That video is great, by the way! Just watched the whole thing. Some great advice in there. Thanks for posting it!)
Thanks for the great advice! I just signed myself up for a lightning talk in a local pub for people to explain their PhDs in 10 minutes or less! Let's see if I can explain what dark matter is in less than 10 minutes... I think I'll do a few short talks like this first, as you suggested, before moving on to longer, more in-depth ones.
Yeah, lightning talks is also a good way to get started. Good luck buddy.
