Conducting analysis is an art and a science. No amount of reading about analysis really replaces the experience of conducting analysis. In this project, I needed to explore what I learned about analysis and about how I conduct research in the form of a speech. Using the speech as the communication vehicle was an exercise all its own. It gave me experience writing, and in some ways not writing, in a clear, concise way. The speech format was like Twitter. Each word counts when you are trying to make a time limit. This is a great practice for giving a speech in the Ignite format.
