Joining Five Minute Friday with Lisa Jo-Baker
How timely this prompt is. I need exactly these two words as a self reminder. Because in a few days time, I will be speaking at a conference to almost 100 persons, most of whom are much more experienced than me in the topic that I’m going to speak about.
I’m so looking forward to it. Yet, I’m so dreading it, wishing that it will not come so soon. I’m honored to have been invited to speak. Yet I’m doubtful and fearful that I can’t deliver.
Not that I’m new to public speaking. In my previous job, hosting and giving presentations to foreign delegates was part of my duties. But this time, it’s different.
I’m sharing a personal learning journey. One that shows how inexperienced I am. One that tells everyone that I make mistakes — tons. So to be up there and speak? Yes, I need to be. brave.
