I realized that (however unlikely) it is possible that the subject of that post may read about the project and miss the full-impact of it being a surprise. So I’ll just wait until after the day mentioned (don’t you love how vague I am?) to de-privatize it.
Anyway, I’m still open to input if you saw the questions. Mainly:
- Is there a good way to avoid talking about myself (or keep from looking self-absorbed if I must)?
- Can you think of a good way to organize the speech?
That is, I’m inclined to tell it like a story or a blog-post, with one idea leading into the next. But I’m wondering if, since it is a stand-up presentation (5-minute speech) I need to follow a more conventional tell-em,tell-em, told-em format with discrete points.
