“The challenge continues! This has been an exhilarating experience, like nothing I have done before. While I’ve spent time preparing for panels and presentations, this is quite another level of preparation (and pressure).

I enjoy that you must be concise and spare with words, I think that lends more gravity and meaning to what is said. Avoiding fillers and run on sentences or explanations. Let the carefully chosen words resonate. This is great discipline, to be choosey and concise. This process is all and more than I had hoped it would be. It is an edgy challenge. I can always do better so I can’t rest!

One week away from my talk! Yikes!”
