My first speaking experience of any kind started today at the AKLTG office in TTDI Plaza, Kuala Lumpur.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I would rate. It had been a long time since I last stood in front of a crowd. And what was supposed to be a 45 minute presentation on Content Creation Secrets turned into a 1 and a half hour session.
Not that the content creation methods were a secret anymore after the presentation.
The crowd of no more than 57 people had been but a energetic, humorous lot… and challenging as well. I especially like people who catch my jokes.
To my own surprise, my first speaking experience went off with a good and satisfying start. I was surprised how well I handled standing in front of a group of audience – did people actually prefer to die over speaking in public?
Have to improve the part on talking too fast though.
I owe my confidence and motivation boosting greatly to Ladan because if not for her, I don’t think I would have fared this well this afternoon.
And not forgetting to thank Stuart Tan and the 57 students – Joseph, KC Goh, Perianan, Wong, and others – for giving me the opportunity to be at the event as a guest speaker. It had been a great pleasure.
It’s worth speculating. I look forward to see more enthusiastic people in the local Internet Marketing scene!
