Presentation on Gozo.

Part of my job involves me giving presentations to groups of people, and my employers are always trying to find new ways to test our presenting skills.
A challenge that I have just been given for Tuesday of next week is to give a presentation to a TV audience on anything that I feel passionate about, that has nothing to do with my job. I have chosen Gozo, now it does not sound to hard, does it?
I have 240 seconds or 4 minutes, no longer.
Now the question is how do I sell Gozo to an audience in 4 minutes, what do I put in and what do I leave out, where do I start?

For those of you that know Gozo, I am open to any ideas that you might like to share with me.

oh dear... Gozo in 4 minutes?? I think I'd show the contrasts one can find in Gozo, like

->> blazing sun & yellow sand stone / bright blue sky & green fields

->> young crazy people in disco / old women working lace (or fishermen mending nets)

->> old architecture / modern buildings

->> lazy sunbathing / rock-climbing or abseiling


Well, I guess you get the idea: showing that although it's a truly tiny island it has a lot to offer! ;-) PS: do you need any photos?

Thanks Sabine, you have given me some material to be working with.
Thanks for the offer of photos but the presentation will be just me, a camera and 4 short minutes.

I will let you know how it goes.

Soooo... how did it go? :-)

The presentation went well, after a shakey start I got into the flow of things and it was OK, not brilliant but OK.

It is amazing the difference a camera makes, give me a room full of people to talk to any day.
