Looking for some tips on doing a seminar. I have zero experience in public speaking, I do have a good background in what I will be talking about.
The seminar will be approx. 2 hours. I plan to spend the final 1 hour showing off examples of work we do at the various stages as well as the tools we use and some of the basic tecniques.
The audience will have no or very little knowledge of this particular subject so a big part of my job will be more of a presentation than demonstration.
I will be speaking for approx 1 hour. How much time do I spend talking about myself and my history? how much do I plug the company sponsoring this seminar?
After my introduction should I ask the group if they would like to identify themselves? I have no idea how many will show up, I suspect between 10 and 25.
The subject is making all wood bows and arrows, and I will be addressing a crowd of hobby wood workers.
