… jotted down at the book talk last night. I should combine beer and social/professional outings more often. It’s good for the creative juices!
Attention directly correlates to how it will (or won’t) impact the person listening.
5-10 minutes is a safe demarcation point. Make sure you have an interesing point every 5-10 mins.
The mark of a professional: His mic goes out. He asks if everyone in the back can hear him. He goes on.
Points != arguments
Points = what you want them to do
Arguments = how you want to convince them
An idea of my own! Perhaps deliverable fidelity should grow as the project grows on. Have fewer points at the beginning; have lots of details at the end.
