Ten Ways to Shockproof Your Use of Social Networking Lightning Talk

I had the privilege of presenting my 25-minute presentation on Shockproofing Your Use of Social Media as a five-minute Lightning Talk at the STC Summit in Sacramento on May 18th.

Lightning talks introduce an additional element of stress for the presenters: the slides advance every 15 seconds whether they’re ready or not. Our audience was ~150 Summit attendees, so we were presenting to our peers as well.

It’s quite the experience sharing the stage with eight other presenters with totally different styles. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!

I loved this! I agree with Karen, it’s an important topice, and you handled the strict structure really well. Let’s hope we all get to do it again!

    Thanks Brenda. It was a blast, albeit a bit frightening! Yours was great as well. Are you posting it?

    BTW–I submitted the full length version to Summit this year. The feedback I received was that the material was too basic. I’ll probably try again next year! (I’m presenting the full Digital Self Defense for Technical Communicators as the STC webinar on 6/1.)

It’s so much fun doing these talks! Thanks for sharing yours, Ben.
Your talk is terribly relevant, so you could easily go on the road with it. You cover basic stuff, yet I still meet people who don’t know this. Frightening, actually.

    Thanks Karen. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The event had the feel of WWE at times. I assume you saw the smack talk in the tweets.
