October 27 2010 (Wednesday) - Anaemia

What with one thing and another we were short of a speaker for the CPD seminar today, so I stepped into the breach. Over the years I’ve prepared a few talks that I can give at short notice. The talk I gave today was on anaemia – a subject with which I have a passing acquaintance.

With an audience of double the average attendance of last year’s sessions, I was quite pleased with the turn out.
Mind you, I have noticed that no matter how much I prepare and practice and rehearse, when it comes to actually give the talk, I over-run.  What should have lasted fifteen minutes went on for nearly twenty five minutes. I need to stick to my pre-prepared spiel, and stop ad-libbing things that come to mind as I’m wittering on.
