I talked last year to a couple of friends about speaking at an event. I’m not particurly good at speaking, I’m shy and to be honest, not good at talking about the work I do. Passionate yes, technical, no.
So why the hell would I want to do a talk?
Overcoming a fear might be a factor. I see others doing it, some very good, some really poor and think it can’t be that hard. Would be nice to not be as shy as I am too. Just imagine myself naked right?
Also, I guess it’s a recognition thing. I want to be part of the scene and feel that maybe I’d get more recognition if I was out there doing something? Not sure on this excuse but putting it out there for discussion. Maybe I could write a book too?
I have something to say also. Well I’d like to think I do. I’ve worked hard to get to where I am and have had some knocks and good times on the way. I’d like to share my life anyway and am quite an open book so being able to laugh and cry about things I’ve been through appeals to me.
So I suppose I should start putting some sort of content together.
It will either end well or in disaster.
