After hearing me speak, they we’re going to class. I can’t wait to find out how it went. If I just went by applause, I would give it an A-. But, I am NOT the audience….as my wife says. So, we will see!
I spoke in front of 400 students and faculty today and they seemed “moved” by my story. I was watching the audience as the video played and it was surprising. Many of the attendees brought their hand up to their mouths…. as if they were actually living the moment. I never watched the audience before, but I think I will going forward. It made me feel close to the members involved. I will let you know how it goes. After years of speaking, I think it is funny that I never watched the audience!
Side note: don’t I look old in the picture Jill took?
