Lightning Talk: How to Effectively Reach Your Audience

Lightning Talks are an opportunity for anyone in the office to give a 5-minute talk on any topic of their choice once a month. The format gives participants a chance to practice their presentation skills in a stress free setting and for the audience to learn from and about their colleagues.

The keys to effectively reaching an audience that is not directly invested in your topic can be summarized in 3 points:

1. First grab the audiences? attention.? You can do this by asking a question or introducing the topic in a way they can relate too.
2. Hold their attention by telling them about the structure of your content or what you are going to speak about in the next few minutes.
3. Break the content down to 2-3 points to keep it simple and drive the content home.
