As I make the final preparations for a speech that for me marks a turning point, I have been reflecting on the importance of authenticity. Oh no, I haven’t!
In all truth I have been like a rabbit in the headlights! I make a living out of standing up in front of people in workshops and sure, the adrenaline kicks in there, but this is different.
I’m going to be talking to a group of people about climate change and I’ve done this before too but not from this particular standpoint – how it really is for me. Authentic, warts and all, aspiring – and often failing – eco warrior. It’s terrifying and exhilarating at the same time, like a rollercoaster (I love rollercoasters).
I have Sarah Lloyd-Hughes at Go Ginger to thank for this particular ride and I’m looking forward to surviving and telling the tale.
