Show and tell

#75: You’ve been asked to do a five-minute presentation to a group of young schoolchildren on the topic of your choice. Describe your presentation.

Hmmm… Well this is a tricky one. My initial thoughts were either Egyptology/Tutankhamun, Paralympic sports, working for a kids magazine, the dangers of Palm Oil usage or how to save endangered species.

I think the easiest and most interesting topic for children out of the above option, especially for a 5-minute presentation, would be one about what goes into making such a fun-filled kids magazine. I’d firstly discuss how many of us are involved in making the monthly 72-page magazine (FYI, it’s 8), before moving on to explaining a bit about my role and what happens in the lead up to press day… a brief overview of course.
