Minute Madness

14 12 2011

This post is about lessons learned from my first experience of ‘minute madness’ – a one minute presentation given in a group of about 30 people last week at the International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC).

Lessons Learned

  • 60 seconds is a surprisingly long time – next time I would think of it in terms of 3 x 20 seconds (i.e. 3 pecha kucha slides)
  • the best PowerPoint slides were simple –  even though people normally read PowerPoint slides whilst presenters are talking, the 1-minute focuses much more on the presenter and much less on the slide
  • include an image and key contact detail e.g. URL or email address on the slide
  • trying to get your point across in 1 minute means the focus is not on the information but rather on: 1. a hook OR something crazy to grab attention and be memorable – the stranger the better; 2. remembering to give your contact details
