Two Minute Presentation Workshop

The UBC Terry Project has a swell idea: bring 8 of UBC's most fascinating and engaging students together for a day, where they can give the talk of their lives to 350 of their peers.

If this sounds familiar, it's because the conference is intentionally modeled on the wonderful TED conferences. Unlike TED, you don't have to be a Nobel laureate, write a best-seller or cure cancer -- you just have to be a UBC student willing to go for it.

Even for us non-UBCers, the following short (1:49) promo video from the Terry Project provides a great presentation workshop all by itself on Things to Avoid When Speaking Publicly.
