I can relate! Saying yes seems like such a good idea and then reality (and nerves) hit!
Some questions for you:
– do you know how long you’ll have for your talk?
– what kind of audience are you speaking to? Is this a corporate gig? community workshop? paid or free?
– what is your goal for the talk? inform only or have people work with you 1:1/ sign up for a program?
I agree with you – keep it simple – but you’ll also want to make it engaging so as not to lose their interest. You can do this with quirky facts, humour, case studies, videos, etc.
Happy to flesh this out with you a bit more – looking forward to your reply!
