It's fair to say I was nervous! It all began ok. Tech set up was fine and my slides appeared as they were supposed to.
I began to read my notes, click through the slide show... all was well....
And then my notes and my slides didn't match! I had lost my place. I didn't quite 'die' but it was close.
I now know exactly what happened. I had printed my notes out and, to save paper, I had printed it double sided. This meant I read one side, turned over the sheet, read the second side, discarded the sheet, read the top side of the next sheet and so on.... I got mixed up and discarded too soon. I stumbled.
People were very kind and said I had coped well, and that my project came across anyway but I was super frustrated. So I recorded the conference presentation as I wish I had managed to do it!
