Tag Archive for ‘Poo’
Talking to strangers isn’t my strong point – public speaking usually coincides with a quite a bit of stress and nervous sweating. So when the opportunity to volunteer and be trained in public engagement with the British Ecological Society (BES) came up, I hoped it would chuck me right in the deep end, and I’d get over it. What really happened is that I spent a thoroughly enjoyable weekend in a lovely sunny field, asking festival-goers whether they’d like to learn about animal poo. If that doesn’t help you get over a fear of public speaking, nothing will.
