Education Slot: 60 seconds

Education slot was delivered by Simon Raeburn this week and was about the 60 second opportunity. They are like your advert, we all have the same opportunities (time). You need to put something across to make sure people remember you, try telling a story. Make notes before so you don’t have to remember what you want to say. This is your verbal advert for all the other people in the room. Remember whenever possible you should name a contact that you would like to be introduced to.
