Your personal brand or story is less interesting than the awesome tips and interactive exercises you share
Attendees want to walk away with a plan of action. Be sure to include specific lessons you'll teach that aren't too generic or broad.
Limit the scope
In 30-60 minutes, you won't be able to cover everything about your topic. Instead, pick a specific useful aspect.
