I now have the details of the final selection stage for the Nottinghamshire Roosevelt Travelling Scholarship I'm hoping to take advantage of. The stage consists of a ten minute presentation with up to 15 minutes for questions. The presentation needs to cover the following topics;
- Project objectives
- Outline itinerary
- Contacts in America and level of support from employer
- How the Scholarship experience will benefit my career and my employer
- Plans for self development outside of your specific project
- Plans to disseminate discoveries during the trip and obtain publicity on return.
So quite a bit to cram into 10 minutes! Oh, and it's in front of 10-12 of the Trustees...
Need to do a lot of detailed thinking and planning over the next couple of weeks I think.
