Episode 12: Only 5 Minutes To Present? No Problem!

How do I present my ENTIRE design project in only 5 minutes??

This is something I struggled with many times as an architecture student. You work for weeks and weeks, do tonnes of research and analysis, explore concept after concept and create numerous presentation drawings. You could easily talk about your project for hours.

How can you possibly cram all your knowledge into a 5 minute presentation?

Turns out, it’s not about cramming in as much info as possible. There is a simple solution!

In this episode I share:

  • The most valuable piece of presentation advice I received at university
  • 3 reasons why you DON’T need to tell your audience everything about your project
  • HOW to go about selecting content to share in your presentation
  • Plus some tips and tricks to alleviate stress during question time!

I also briefly talk about my first Toastmasters experience and why I think you should give it a try!
