It is funny. I thought by now, after well over 100 speeches …on the SAME topic, I wouldn’t have to prepare anymore. NOPE!
As much as I try to deliver the talk, without any notes, I STILL have to look at where I am. This is frustrating… yet enlightening. I’m constantly changing the presentation. Let me re-phrase: I change a word here or there. Changing a few words makes me have to read the whole sentence. Since I don’t know what sentence come next, I am stuck reading!
At least you know you are getting fresh material!
