Super short talks

It can be so delightful and energising to watch a super short talk.

Or a range of short talks put together into a Lightning Talks event. (This is an event that takes place in person, or online, with talks that are usually 5 mins or less.)

It is amazing what you can convey as a speaker in under 5 minutes. For example, here’s a 3:30 min talk, that has had over 15 million views across YouTube and the TED site.

Even better, short talks can be really fun to make and share! You get to test out different ideas, and build your speaker skills in a highly focused, and time efficient way.

I highly recommend giving it a go.

It’s also really fun to create your own Lightning Talk Event. (They work great for teams!)
