The first public speaking appearance I’ve ever made was a webinar I delivered for eCPD Webinars in 2012. Lucy from eCPD Webinars approached me following the publication of my ebook and asked if I was interested in giving a talk on this topic. At the time, I thought of it as a one-off. Always the quiet person at the back of the room, I didn’t see myself giving talks and presentations. And yet between then and now, I was invited to a few conferences and events. Always with the same thrill and excitement (as I learned from public speaking guides you should never call it “stress”) these talks left me with (good and worse) memories and several slide decks.
Since I’m not going to be around much next year, I thought I’d release most of my slides on Slideshare. Here’s the first slide deck I’ve ever delivered:
Don’t comment on design – at least I tried! The questions on the last slide still hold true.
I’ll be releasing a slide deck a day and embedding them in this link, so do come back if you’d like to learn more.
