My biggest stage so far
What an honour to be asked to speak at the recent Derbyshire Police Conference on Wellbeing, Emotional Resilience and Anxiety. I was a little nervous (understatement of the year) as I had seen pictures of the conference centre where this was being held so I had to use my Brave superpower to get me up on stage as my Nervous super power was hiding in the car.
With about 200 people in the room it was the biggest audience I have ever had to speak to and I loved it. I was even mic’d up which is a new experience. I did really well talking about resilience and wellbeing, giving something to the audience, and getting lots of engagement from them with loads of questions being asked.
I also did really well not swearing until the end. I forgot I was mic’d up and when I was given a gift for speaking I said something a little, or maybe a lot, inappropriate.
Thank you to Bridie for asking me to do this.
