- Engage your audience – perhaps start with a question, or a statement on a problem that your audience will understand and can relate to.
- Start at the end – what problem will you solve – what product will you create
- Briefly – and without jargon, explain how you are approaching the problem
- Point out what makes your work unique
- Tell them what you need from them. Are you looking for funding support/access to expertise?
- Practice – don’t use notes
