Two weeks ago, I had the privilege of speaking at the incredible Disrupt HR event in Nottingham and what an event it was!
I’ve not attended a Disrupt HR event before so being honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was so beneficial for so many reasons, I met some amazing people who had a different perspective on our profession so not only did I learn a lot, I also gained some invaluable connections too.
Whilst my public speaking career is in its very early stages, I am so pleased that I am facing my fear and speaking about the topics that are close to my heart as well as those subjects that are lacking in voice. I am also happy to be speaking at other events later this year such as Natural HR in May and there are a couple of others in the pipeline, so if you need a speaker for your event, feel free to contact me.
My video for Disrupt HR Nottingham is now live and you can view it here.
If like me, you have a fear of public speaking, remember that everyone has a story to share, you never know, you might just inspire someone else to go for that dream job, or review their goals. Your story and voice are powerful tools, it’d be a shame not to use them, especially when it can help others, so my advice is just to go for it, even if you don’t enjoy it, at least you can say you gave it a go!
Thank you for all of your support and to those who have helped me face my speaking fear head on, I am loving it and thank you for your positive encouragement – here’s to the next event!
