Last Tuesday I held my presentation. It went well. There were about 80 people present; residents, municipality officials, councilors, and journalists. The only thing I had to do was remain calm. It worked. At the end of the evening, several people complimented me on my presentation! An official came up to me and said: “What a great presentation!” Furthermore, a councilor told me my story was very easy to follow. This is in contrast to the presentation of a police officer. “He should surely follow the same course! What a boring story… Very monotone and various pieces of text on sheet.
Today I held my first 45-minute public presentation. It went very well. I was relaxed and told my story. The presentation also included a PowerPoint (written by others) with two boring articles. The first half hour I spoke without any preparation, which went very well. But as soon as I started to discuss the articles, the audience became restless. The feedback I received from P&O was good. “Especially the impromptu story was very convincing,” they said. A lesson for the next time: I’ll remove the entire PowerPoint. I have now been scheduled for four additional presentations.
I still feel euphoric. When I stood on the rostrum and quietly looked around, everyone became silent. What a great feeling! When I started to speak, the microphone didn’t work. I absolutely did NOT panic. For me, this was such a special occasion. I noticed that my voice was a little high, but after I realized this, and started to speak in lower tones, I became even more relaxed. After the presentation, people came to me and asked where the municipality had hired me from. Even now, I still can’t believe it.
