Top tips

Regarding ‘Top Tips in 2 minutes’, Ruth Bastable, et al,1 mentions ‘you are asked to talk for an hour’. She will find the audience asleep. They can concentrate for 35 minutes with a maximum of 25 slides. Then questions for however long the organiser requires. That's when the audience wakes up again. She must have a good chairman. Speakers who extend their time are a menace and should be stopped.
