I'm super excited.

I think it went really well.

You might have seen a few of my previous posts, with previews of the talk content or how I was feeling. It finally came together and I took to the 'stage' tonight.

My talk was titled 'Does it have to be complicated?' and I got all my points across but in typical self-assassination style, once the talk was over, I kept thinking of things I should have said. Things I could have improved.

Why do we doubt ourselves?

I got some great feedback on the build up to my talk. Advice on things to add. Advice on things to remove, tweak, improve. I'd like to give a huge thank you to those people - if you read this, you know who you are. You're amazing.

Before the talk started, I was a little bit nervous. It wasn't too bad. I expected it to be must worse. During the talk, I immediately relaxed and just went through what I have practiced. I took notes, so I didn't forget where I was up to, but I knew what I was going to say and I felt really confortable with the crowd.

After the talk, I had some great feedback from friends and colleagues, but also from strangers I've never spoke to before!

Apparently, I should do stand up comedy! During my talk, I knew there were a couple of things that got the crowd laughing, but I didn't feel like I was that funny!

I really wish the talk was recorded. I was asked to record it, but I completely forgot. Actually gutted.
