MORE ABOUT THE THEME
Goal: To practice quick-thinking on our feet in front of an audience as well as getting comfortable and giving our best effort even if there's little time to prepare.
Useful for: General confidence when speaking and those times when we didn't expect to present. Whether it's a group meeting at work and the CEO has us a say a few words about our project or we are surprised with an award, it demonstrates poise and confidence to be able to rise to the occasion.
Speech Length: 3 minutes
Preparation: None required. You'll have 1 minute to prepare just prior to speaking. Feel free to practice before the party on your own with random topics, giving yourself 1 min prep and 3 minutes of talk time.
- A computer with a webcam
- Notebook (suggested)
