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.
|Needs||Demonstrate the value of the Spine Model|
|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|
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 natural public speaker, so doing this was very helpful to me. Next time I will add “Maintain eye contact” as a Practice.
