I am excited!

This evening I’m flying down to East Midlands airport and from there I’ll be making my way to Mickelover Hotel (near Derby) where I’m attending, and speaking at, the Technical Communications conference.

I’ve not done much public speaking with my last outing being a couple of years ago at a similar, smaller, conference and that seemed to go quite well so I’m fairly confident that I’ll be able to deliver a reasonably good presentation on my topic of choice which is, as it happens, about blogging.

I think I’ll be able to handle that, eh?

My slot is first thing on Thursday morning of the second day of the conference (graveyard slot much?) so I’ve time to run through it a couple of times yet but, overall, I think it’ll be alright. I’ll be posting it on my other blog on Thursday morning.

One added bonus to being in that part of the woods is that I’ll finally get to meet the Troubled Diva himself as well as SwissToni and Sarah, and to be honest I’m not sure which I’m more excited about, presenting at the conference or meeting Mike. Yay.


  1. That’s not something you see every day – someone excited about going to Derby 🙂

    Hope the talk goes well. The subject of ‘blogging’ is so wide ranging and dependent on the knowledge/intelligence of the audience it could be a little tricky but I’m sure you’ve got that covered.

  2. Buueuh.. Public speaking. 9 out of 10 people are more afraid to speak out in public then do something creepier. Anyway, good luck! Ill be following your blog now 🙂

  3. No, no, no, first thing in the morning’s not the graveyard slot – first thing in the afternoon is! First thing in the morning is a GREAT slot as people are fresh and engaged. (Well. As long as not too much drink was taken the night before.)

    It’ll be great – good luck!
