First complete run-through of my talk = ~45 minutes.
Not bad – this means subsequent run-throughs will take less time, as there will be less “ummms” and “errrs.” But of course, the actual presentation will take longer, as I will have to answer any questions thrown at me, plus wait through my boss and other committee members going off on random tangents. I’m looking to keep in to an hour and a half max. That gives me enough time to get to Porters for a celebratory drink, then home for food and a nap before hitting up the House Party tomorrow night.
I really can’t wait for this to be over.
