Loneliness

Loneliness is or can be a (sometimes silent) killer. It is a complex and usually unpleasant emotional response to isolation or lack of companionship. You can be surrounded by millions of people and feel the utmost loneliness through lack of connection to other people. I hear London being called a lonely city all the time and that is one big place. It can be triggered by times of the year or it can be an ongoing issue highlighted by some event or something someone says or just there staring you in the face.

Hallowe’en is not the scariest thing in the world -(Hint: Public speaking is)

Public speaking is scary. Making a presentation can be hell for some people. Even hearing the word can make people quake in their boots. I am in the business of hosting, organising, creating and giving presentations and workshops, I get to speak to a lot of people about this topic and know lots of people thoroughly dislike it. So I thought I’d pass on some of what I know. I hope it helps. Note: This post is not about crafting a workshop, just things you can do to be a better, less nervous presenter.
