I tend to over prepare for speaking engagements, which leaves me coming across like a talking head. Tonight, I’m going to use an outline and aim to hit some specific points. One of my biggest goals is to try not to gush about Laura Gordon, who’s also on the roster. I’ll try not to end up looking and sounding like a geeky fan who somehow snuck in like the Obama dinner party crashers.
Okay, the list for today is substantial, but if I keep on top of it, all will be well. While writing this post, I’ve sent off 4 emails, made one call, taken an RSVP call and ran a mapquest to the nearest bank branch.
I love this.
Oh, yes, and what WILL I say tonight…?

Update… I took all my blurry notes and an index card. The index card went up to the podium with me. I did well. Lots of people came up to me after the presentation to chat about the experience that I described. And, that was the gist of it, too. It was about the experience of putting together free Shakespeare in the Park almost as much as it’s potential significance to the cultural footprint of Milwaukee. It was personal. People responded.
