I still remember the very first time I was invited to make a presentation to my senior management team. I couldn’t sleep for days; my mind was filled with dread, and every nerve, cell and fibre of my entire being felt like they were preparing for a major meltdown. I was only in my early twenties, but I believe that even the cuff on a blood pressure monitor would have been trembling.
It was a long time ago, but I remember it well, just as I do those few days before I prepared for my first kiss.
Fast-forward 30 years and I find myself not only presenting to senior executives all over the world, but teaching professionals to enjoy their first kiss, if you understand my meaning. As the old saying goes, “I only wish I knew then what I know now”.
Sometimes people learn just that little bit quicker and easier by focusing on some of the mistakes they need to avoid, so here are my top seven.
