Following a presentation I gave on Monday, I received the following e-mail from one of the delegates.
What a pleasure it was to meet you last night. Your talk captivated everyone and you certainly had their undivided attention!
You are a natural speaker, enthusiastic, optimistic, passionate and thoroughly inspiring! You have, no doubt, given us a lot to think about. Your humour is one great asset and I truly admire you.
Thanks once again for your brilliant talk!
Lots of love
As a speaker, it is sometimes difficult to see the impact that one’s presentations have on people, and receiving an e-mail like this is both wonderful… and humbling – at least, it is for me.
PS The part of the mail I took out was about a shared love of Golden Retrievers… and the trials associated with trying to keep them from becoming overweight – I didn’t think everyone needed to read that bit!
