PM BLOCK- Speechwriting (aiming for speeches of around 2 minutes)
This was, in general, the weakest part of the conference last time around. We have more time to prep these this time, so I will be expecting speeches that are closer to the time limit (if you’re under 1 minutes, that’s a real problem), and that use the research you’ve done and various engagement strategies to make them clear and interesting.
