To be honest, I think longer presentations are easier because there is more latitude in terms of pace and how you go through the slides. When you "only" have five minutes, I felt there was pressure to not waste a second. It meant I had to stay on script, focus on what mattered and stop myself from being distracted or going off on a tangent. It didn't help that there were other speakers ahead of me who nailed the five-minute format. :) Mark"
