Writing slowly

I find myself in the same predicament as many of my students; I put off preparing my conference presentations for the upcoming New Zealand Association of Classics Teachers conference until the last minute. Structure is key and while my main presentation is nearly finished, it is the ignite 5 minute presentation which has me stumped. The nature of an ignite presentation puts a lot of pressure on the presenter – timed wittiness.  I am probably more aware of the intended audience for this than for any other conference I have presented at. It is hard to be responsible for planning and organising a national conference, cheers to the other three zealots, and then to have to present two things as well… Writing all this down has helped my perspective but not my presentation. Back to it!
