Lightning Talks are tricky beasts. You have just 7.5 minutes you have to communicate your point clearly and concisely – a harder task than it might seem. You are allowed slides, of course… but they advance automatically every 30 seconds. Not only do you have to be quick, but your timing must be impeccable.
However, if you conquer the challenge, you join the Pantheon of the Greats*. Below you can see brilliant Lightning Talks from Business of Software from Patrick McKenzie (patio11, Stripe), Des Traynor (Founder, Intercom), and Alexis Ohanian (Founder, Reddit).
