“Surely you knew you were going to be on the panel?”, I hear you ask.
Well… yes, BUT…
- I’d completely forgotten about it until I saw it mentioned on the blog of a fellow panelist.
- I may have been sent emails regarding the festival, but they were probably sent to an email account I no longer have access to
Thankfully, I’m only one member of a panel, it’s a topic I’m comfortable with and my public speak has improved (somewhat) since my days at uni.
