Many of us who read this blog have to give talks. I (Clare) found this list of helpful hints for giving talks fabulous. I so agree with a few of the points: “jargon is death”. How often have you sat through a talk that is a string of jargon and wondered what is he talking about? I was so happy to see “story as queen” on the list. I love hearing stories and when they connect to the findings/research the talk comes alive. I know that the next time I have to give a talk, I will review this list to make sure I do “one kickass thing” and give myself permission to stumble. Enjoy.
