My lecturing debut
I have a fear of public speaking, a common anxiety I’m sure, characterised by sleepless nights and the frustration of letting nerves overshadow my clarity. Yet we all know that the ability to effectively address an audience presents an advantage in the world of work, when it is necessary to inform others, as well as to aid general confidence and networking skills. So, when I heard about the inaugural student lecture series for Sociology, I thought this would be the ideal opportunity to push myself in at the deep end and give it a go! Bearing in mind the presentation will be on a topic of my choice with focus on issues surrounding my dissertation, it should ease me in gently!
