Preparing a presentation

These are notes to help presenters prepare a presentation to the Society

Background

The Society meets every other Monday during its two seasons: one starts in October typically and the second part starts in February.  The sessions start at 7:30 and finish at 9:30.  There is a 15 minute break in the middle.

It is possible to bring a stick or a lap top to enable visual presentation of material to take place.

Planning

You have 1 hr 45 mins for your presentation.  It is wise to allow 5 minutes for lost time so that effectively means you have 1hr:40 to play with.

So a typical presentation will start with an introduction which could be as much as 10 minutes.  There is likely to be some explanation between discs about the next piece and these can be around 2 minutes each or as much as 5 minutes.

So you just need to add up the music lengths, add the talk time including your introduction, and this should add to 1hr:40 or 100 minutes.  If you would like questions, then it comes down to 90 mins.

If you can type up a playlist that would be appreciated.  About 10 copies is about right but more would be welcome.
