Context

I was given a 10 minute slot at a local developer community event to introduce and explain the Spine model. Before I prepared the talk I made a quick spine of what I would like to achieve.

Talk Spine

  • Need
    • Demonstrate the value of the Spine Model
  • Values
    • Simplicity
    • Practicality
  • Principles
    • Know your audience
    • Less is more
    • Cut down on text
    • Use metaphor
    • Multiple examples.
  • Practices
    • Test first approach
    • Talk through slide deck
  • Tools
    • Mac
    • Connector
    • Keynote slides
    • Projector
    • Voice

Outcome

It helped me focus on what was important, I changed and stripped down a number of slides and focussed on the key message. I’m not a great public speaker, so doing this was very helpful to me. Next time I will add “Maintain eye contact” as a Practice.
