Edit: Realized that this link had changed, so I’ve edited it so it works now. It’s not the best story-telling delivery in the world – I was way too nervous – but I like this story and had such a good time after being so fearful 🙂 Click on the picture to go to the site!
I’ve been lucky enough to spend time with graphic facilitator Brandy Agerbeck and get to see how she challenges herself, and was amazed by her talk, “Shape Your Thinking: Brandy Agerbeck at TEDxWindyCity,” so when, just a few days later, I was asked to participate in an evening of story-telling with InCommon.tv I said yes. And then I said “yikes” – and said “yikes” many, many times in between yes and the actual event. I hadn’t actually memorised anything since I was about 22 and that didn’t go particularly well. But, as another of my mentors, Lee-Anne Ragan, said, “Let’s imagine it’s not going to be hard and it’s not beyond us and that we can do it and it will go well.”
