How to use the ‘Coffee Chat’
First of all you don’t need to learn the ‘script’ word for word, just present the information in your own way either face to face over a coffee or via Zoom
On this page you’ll find a three part document
Part 1 is a guide ‘script’ the sentences in bold are the things you really need to say (in your own words)
This refers to a video clip which will be made available to you as soon as possible
Part 2 shows the highlights you write down on a sheet of paper as you are talking. To see what I mean there’s a short (10 min) video below of how it might be done.
As you’ll see, it doesn’t have to be a ‘perfect’ presentation, just a way of effectively getting the message across.
The last section is the most important where you end with “what would you like to talk about first” or words to that effect
Part 3 is a part filled sheet you can print off and use if you want to, it’s not essential to use this sheet
If you are presenting over Zoom then it’s probably easier to use the animated PowerPoint attached. You don’t have to use this, you can draw it out if you can arrange your camera appropriately.
Try out the presentation first. If you can practice in your personal zoom room if you have one. You’ll need to share screen and then each line on the presentation will come up as you click your mouse.
Before you share screen you’ll need to click on the ‘slide show’ icon in the bottom bar on the right and adjust the display so it doesn’t completely fill your screen. It helps if you don’t have too many windows open when you do this.
