I get to do public speaking now

My dad’s a member of the local Lions Club and just now he called me up and said he had volunteered my services as a speaker for sometime in March, assuming I was okay with the idea. I said I was. I’ve never spoken in public about Charley, but I did a presentation about gemstones before a college geology class (twice), and I’m certainly not shy. I’ll have plenty of time to prepare, six weeks or two months, and a lot of the audience will be people I know. It should go all right.

Lack of technology will be an issue. I used a PowerPoint presentation on a projector for the gemstones presentation; the Lions Club’s clubhouse doesn’t have one. I may just have to rely on dead trees. I will, of course, pass out business cards.

    I wish you continued success with Charley it may prove itself as an extremely important data base for the future if laws change in regards to new information new findings changes with dna database etc etc.

    SOunds like fun! I get to travel and speak about my research a fair amount. I ❤ the giant pads of paper on an easel if there's no technology.

    Remember to picture every member of the audience in his underwear 😉

    it’s always fun to give a talk about a subject you’re passionate about and are knowledgeable in… and those qualities show through when you’re talking and make for an interesting learning experience for the audience. I think everyone has had to sit through a speech or presentation given by someone who either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about what they’re talking about. Good Luck!
