I was delighted to hear a few months ago that TEDx was coming to Glasgow. What was running through my mind was this is a real opportunity to speak at one of the most prestigious events on the calendar. What do you do with that information? You apply and worry about what on earth you are going to talk about later.
And then the unthinkable happened… I was selected! This is of course great news and after the initial paperwork was sent through and the organisers got in touch (Thank you Victoria & Paula) I was left with the overwhelming task of creating a compelling and engaging talk!
If you’ve seen a TED or TEDx talk on YouTube, then you’ll know they are quite simply a masterclass in public speaking, so the pressure is well and truly on.
What am I talking about? Well, without telling you too much, I can say it is relevant to every single one of us, because as the title of the event suggests, this is about the ‘Common Wealth of Glasgow’ and how the people of Glasgow can make a positive change.
The TEDx event is taking place on the 8th of June at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and more details of the event and of course the other speakers are here:
