Extreme public speaking
If speaking in public is consistently ranked as most people’s greatest fear, then spare a thought for the representatives of our three projects fundraising at the Europe Centre Summer Course this year. They took spontaneous questions on stage tonight in front of 3,500 people.
Skilfully explaining why these projects in particular were chosen, they stayed calm under pressure (there must be something in this meditation after all), and even managed to squeeze in some jokes and anecdotes. Well done, chaps.
