Of Public Speaking

I'm gigging again today and indeed come to think of it tomorrow too. By that I mean I'm speaking in front of an audience. Today, I'm relaying "The Legal-Island story" to junior and senior managers at Omnisoft in Bangor. Tomorrow I'm co-delivering a seminar on mediation with a colleague.
I used to dread public speaking and stutter and stammer at school when even reading out a short paragraph in class. Now, I love it.
I'm not sure what changed for me. Perhaps it's the challenge I enjoy of trying to hold the attention of the audience, the challenge to make them laugh, have them think or simply to avoid a mistake I've already made.
Bring it on!
