Feeling very relieved, the presentation for the innovations workshop is behind me now. I am happy to report that I somehow managed to pull it off and deliver my presentation without freaking out and completely forgetting all my lines. I even managed to answer the audience questions without choking. Feedback from everyone at the workshop was very good and very encouraging, I’m feeling a little drained but very happy and so very relieved!!!
I have a presentation on Friday at an innovations workshop in front of 300 CEO’s and other heads of agencies, and I am sooo nervous it’s just not funny!!
I have these images in my head of getting all tongue tied and going completely blank, despite that fact that what I am presenting on I know well, it’s what I do.
I would so love to be one of those people that can just get up in front of a room full of people and just look and sound so confident – but that is so not me.
The only solace I can find is that I’m scheduled to go on third, so at least I won’t be sitting there for hours with my nervousness building. Hopefully it will be quick and easy kind of like ripping off a band aid.
