Ted Talks, Ignite, YouTube—people are saying smart, amazing things packed in a short amount of time. Here are some tips, tricks, and try-outs. We'll start with three lightning talks, led by Hannah Jastram, Extension, on "How to give a lightning talk."
Then we'll move into PowerPoint Karaoke (AKA Battle Decks) with your MC, Kari Williams, from the Minnesota Population Center and Pub Trivia Host at the Pig & Fiddle. During this improvisation exercise, volunteers from the audience will present a set of slides that they have never seen before, with audience/setting and topic/purpose coming from the crowd.
