Shoving circles of thought into a sentence or two

Uggh – I hate this part of preparing a presentation. Sitting alone in my office talking out loud to myself, attempting to put all of the thoughts swirling around in your head into words and trying to make them efficient and effective as the clock keeps ticking away.

Why is it that if I were just sitting in a bar talking about this technical stuff with people, I don’t need to practice, I’m just having a conversation and it’s fun. If I was on the phone with a friend who asked me to explain something, it’s not a problem. I think the brevity of the presentation combined with the scope of the content makes it hard. I really have to fly through the information, but still want to share what I have learned.

I think it’s time to go back to all of those blogs of how to do a good presentation.

I actually have a (not quite scheduled yet) LiveMeeting date with Scott Watermasysk and Scott Cate to practice.

Note to self – see if thinkGeek sells a shock device that hits you every time you say “SO” or “umm” in a presentation
