A good way to give a topical presentation is to do so at work. The opportunity to give a true technical presentation at work doesn’t happen often, and you may have to create your own opportunities. Unfortunately, there are plenty of employers that may outright discourage presentations at work because they wrongly think it hinders productivity.

Brown bag lunches create the opportunity to deliver presentations without interfering with productive hours. Schedule a brown bag session during your group’s lunch break and encourage people to ring their lunches to work that day and get some free learning while eating their food. A nice side benefit of these types of sessions that I have seen is that when the company sees how motivated people are to learn, the company may start to encourage it even spring for pizza for everyone.
