With a few conferences and events coming up in the next few weeks I was reminded of a thought I had a few months ago. It was about the ‘authentic’ self we expect to see in people at work. What is the authentic self for a conference speaker?
Are you a conference speaker or are you doing an impersonation of someone who you think is a conference speaker?
When you’re asked to speak at an event, try and think outside the boundaries a bit. Being given freedom to work outside boundaries might make you nervous but it’s an opportunity to be more about you and what you do, not the environment you’re in.
