Quite funny, wasn't it? That while we were amidst our catastrophic start of the first of our presentations this morning the fire alarm went off and saved us from humiliating ourselves - literally saved by the bell. It feels somewhat let down to face the fact we have a very very long way to go to even achieve an acceptable presentation, let alone a decent one. I guess this is what one has got to go through on their way to excellence so I'll just need to keep my head up and see it through.
One point I noticed about myself after having gone through quite a considerable amount of seminars and presentations is that I am quite incapable of following through the points I have made. I believe that I am a quick thinker (this may come out as if I'm full of myself but I hope you understand what I mean) but, after having expressed my opinion, I usually fail to come up with an elaboration to help clarify the point I have just made and I would just go with the usual "hmm, uh,.....yeah". Will a year at Warwick help me me find my voice? That we'll have to wait and see.
