For January I hosted an event as part of Jot, about getting to the point.
What is Jot?
“Jot is a community of people who write. We come together to discuss, learn and share through regular meetups, workshops and events.”
What did I do?
As the prime example of the fact anyone can do a Jot it took a lot to figure out.
A. What am I going to talk about?
B. Why does anyone want to hear me talk about anything?
With the aid of Gifs I managed to come up with a plan of getting to the point. How I condense pitches down to often a few lines and techniques I use on the daily.
The sum up
- Get to the point.
- Recipes, not stories.
- Be concise and focused (but not rude).
- Sentences under 25 words.
- Print out and mark it.
- Read out loud.
