A tight 20 17:09 - May 8 with 2746 viewsE17hoop

I was at an event recently and a speaker was late. I was asked to do a 20 minute fill on the topic of the event - organisational performance - unscripted and no props.

What could you do a tight 20 minutes on if asked?

Am I allowed to just quote Fawlty Towers or Alan Partridge scripts verbatim?

I did a 25 minute best man speech once but that was with major preparation and using props.

After recent "research" I reckon I could easily talk about everything that's wrong with Leeds United and in particular Joel Piroe.

Pensions .
I was determined not to be working full time after 60 , sacked my financial advisor and did it all myself .
I had a meeting with Pension Wise and the bloke said I could do his job .

A little football club in the back streets of West London I fell in love with as a young lad.

If the crowd could handle a 20 minute monologue about my five worst poos I reckon I'd do alright.

Well, I definitely couldn't do it on organisational performance as I don't know what that is.

I went for a job interview open day sorta of thingy & one of the tasks was to do a speech for 2 minutes on “tying your shoelaces “
Couldn’t be arsed with the banality of it all so stood up & said
“Slippers” & walked out.

Id just smash the fire alarm, evacuate the building, and then go home.

I could easily do 20 minutes on how to create and maintain a wildflower meadow but I'd only need the first ten minutes. They'd be sound asleep after the first half of my slot.

I have been known to talk about one particular tune heard in a club for well in excess of 20 minutes on the way home
It might be me repeating the same sentence over and over again and I might be assisted by intake but still…..

Then of course 20 minutes is ONLY 3 and a bit plays of Tears by Frankie Knuckles on loop so not that long at all really
