Marion your willingness to share the different parts of your journey is inspirational. We all go through multiple phases, but most are less open and courageous about airing the thought processes that bring us to those various cross roads that we come to, either in life or professionally. We are all in transition, all of the time and it's great to see someone step up and tell everyone that it's OK! Great affirming post.

Great analogy Marion! Love the concept of anyone can... of course we can! Especially with help from an expert with a foolproof recipe!

Marion - great theme and message. 60% of European graduates are women so we should be a force to be reckoned with! Presentation skills will undoubtedly be part of that process! Wonderful work and challenge! Dorothy

Marion - this is a great story and a great lesson -there is no substitute for not knowing your stuff! Research and product knowledge - doesn't matter which sector or activity you're in, presentation, job search, sales - you have to be able to perform "naked". I experienced this in reverse when I was working with a partner who insisted on a ppt - I felt as if I was on a beach in a ski-suit. Over dresssed and overwhelmed! I was not good and reverted after one more attempt in this mode to a more fluid interactive approach. Brava for spelling it out so easily for us.

Hi Marion - excellent points and one I have struggled with personally over the years especially conflict over career and family issues when my kids were small. But I have come to realise over time that perhaps these pressures are not restricted to women. I feel that both men and women both make unrealistic demands on each other and themselves in our attempts for everyone "to have it all"! Potentially a great debate here!
