    Longest Presentation You've Given...

    Boy that 30 minute senior design group project presentation I gave in college doesn't seem so bad in hindsight after my 4.5 hour solo breakout presentation at work today.

    Beer me.

    Yep you deserve a beer. Sounds brutal, I think my longest one was probably 10 mins or so.

    Probably about 3 hours. Real Property Installation Master Plan briefing with the list of all future projects projected (subject to funding, of course). My part should have been about 50 minutes but since it was to a lot of the big shots they all have to ask questions and pontificate on what it all means. My boss usually got these back under control eventually, but he also liked to pontificate so not always.

    I was always SUPER relieved when it was over each time, so I know how you feel...

    Last one was last November. My retirement presentation. Basically my chance to roast my co-workers and directors so it was a lot of fun. Of course I roasted myself to an even greater extent, so it was a lot of fun for everyone (at least that was the feedback I got).


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    10 minute presentation in English 250 last year is my longest so far. That will probably change after these next two years

    Yup, my presentation was probably extended 1.5 hours because they were asking questions and roasting me. LOL

    It always made me feel like the "no such thing as a stupid question" saying was lame. And it was usually the same one or two people who continuously ask dumb questions.

    Kind of like in college classes, actually...

    At my old job I had to do presentations/demonstrations for medical residents at different universities. Those could drag into the 4-5 hour range depending on Q&A.

    Congrats, gotta feel good to have that under your belt.

    I've done 6-7 hour presentation/workshops, basically an all day deal, 9-12 and then 1-4:30ish. Web content/architecture/creative strategy stuff.

    I've worked concrete, roofing, and other hard labor kind of jobs and I swear I'm just as wiped after an all-day presentation/workshop as any of that stuff.

    I know what you mean. It's terrible on your voice, too. Especially if you are in a room slightly too big for your normal speaking voice. Maybe it's only me, but if I have to increase my volume, by even a little bit, for an extended amount of time, it will just wreck my throat. I have to make sure I drink a lot of water while talking.

    I have a dumb question. What the hell does pontificate mean?

    Re: Longest Presentation You've Given...

    I hosted an overnight retreat while I was at ISU, does that count as a 24 hour long presentation?

    In all honesty, I personally find the presentations where they limit your time more difficult. For my senior design class we needed to present our proposal for an actual RFP released by the army, but were only given 20-30 minutes. I could have easily presented on that for 4 hours!

    I agree 100%. I teach for a living and the absolute worst is a night class and then 8am class the next morning.
