“I never looked at my watch once!”

Stress Medic group talksIn addition to my one 2 one client sessions I am very lucky to have a busy schedule of Stress Medic group talks. My latest was last Thursday for the Wyre Forest Friendship group meeting, held at Stourport Community Centre. Megan, who booked me to talk, was smiling and relieved when I arrived, with just 5 minutes remaining before the start of their meeting. I’d taken a wrong turn on the way and been held up by roadworks.

Wyre Forest Friendship Centre is a thriving group. Fifty or so of the members had arrived for the meeting. I often talk to WI groups, which I really enjoy, but it was nice to see a mixed audience.

They had chosen my most popular talk ‘Hereford & Worcester’s 1st Female Paramedic’. This has a lot of content and, noting that no one was yawning, I will admit I did run over a little. This really is not something to be encouraged in a speaker! So, that’s why I was delighted at how surprised a gentleman seemed when he came to tell me “I never looked at my watch once, and I always do!”

I chatted with several of the members over a cup of tea and biscuits. It was a lovely way to spend a morning and my thanks go to Megan for inviting me.

If you are looking for a different talk for your group or society, you can find a list of my Stress Medic group talks here.
