Oh that was so funny! I hate speaking in public, can't stand it at all - had a stutter when I was younger and it's probably a hangover from that. So a month ago or so  I had to do a little intro to what I do for a 15 year old school kid who was on a work placement thing.

I didn't know about it in advance, I think I got two hours warning, and I really didn't want to do it. I rushed throiugh it all completely unstructured and ran out of things to say after 15 minutes. Boy that was fun.

So next Monday we have another placement person coming who I have to do a similar intro for. My boss just took me to one side and 'advised' me that it might be an idea to have a rigid plan and stick to it. "Maybe even practice it and time yourself if you feel it would help" she says, whilst I'm biting the inside of my cheek trying not to laugh.

I know I screwed up the last one, I was all but hitting my head off the wall at the time (hell, he spotted by Four Star Mary sticker and we started talking about Buffy for half the time!). This time? I plan to have the slickest presentation ever - I may even employ audiovisual aids...
