Tips for a Hockey Presentation

Hi Guys.

The short:

- I have a big second interview for a good company to which I have to do a 10 minute presentation about HOCKEY using PowerPoint/Keynote [Mac]

- I am working abroad in the UK and most of these people know nothing about hockey except that it's 'popular in Canada'

- In 10 minutes I want to give a great presentation, including a short history of the sport, some rules of the game, and talk about hockey culture in Canada and what it means to us

- Content is not important, the point is to keep my audience enthused/engaged for 5-10 minutes.

I would love any input or suggestions from my fellow Canadian hockey fans!

I think OP, your best choice is to go to a "hockey community" in England...

Granted, you're not spoilt for choice, but maybe interact with the group/class/people?

Show them some kit? Get some sticks out and get some very BASIC drills going between them all maybe?

YouTube some clips from past hockey games... there's one from 1898, others from the 20s, 50s, etc. Then you can show the progression of the game, and in doing so link its historical development to a developing Canada.

The above suggestion by Beville would also be cool

Probably throw in about Lord Stanley, him being British and the first awarding of the cup. Then from there you would go onto the meaning of the cup to fans, and players (their day with the cup in their home town is a unique thing). Throw in some Olympics, I think Britain won an Olympic gold way back (the team was full of Canadians), especially with London2012 coming up.

That's a great idea, thanks! Stroking their ego a bit will help lol!

1936 I believe that was...

Also, elaborate on the Tony Hand bit, him being the Gretzky of British Hockey.. Mention some of his past, drafted, etc.

Also, you could go onto mention players of British heritage; Owen Nolan, Steve Thomas and the fighter, Byron Dafoe...

David Phillips of AHL fame is the only current example I can think of however.
