I have another major one in about 3 hours.
This time completely in English, in front of international clients.
I'm not even nervous yet. But I think I will be. Cross your fingers for me please, as always.

I did fucking awesome!

What is surprising, I feel much more confident presenting in English than in my native language.

Maybe it's because of the fact that for a regular guy from Slovakia, my ability to communicate in English on verbal and written level is really pretty good :). So this is kind of a psychological advantage for me towards the other people in the room.

You should use saucy English profanities!!!! Sprinkle them in there!

Well done to you sir.

I work with two women from Slovakia and their English is impeccable, puts a lot of English people to shame. One of them sells cosmetics in her spare time. She doesn't need the money, she just likes to practice her English by standing in front of a group of English people and presenting to them in English.

That's my "Slovakian person giving a presentation in English" story.

That story made my day, Pookie. Thank you.

By the way, next week I should be given an offer for a job in London. I passed all the interview rounds, so now it's all about terms and conditions.

It's going to be a tough decision, if to go and try a new life in the UK or stay home.

Another one today.

A Thousand Threads 06.25.2014 06:24 AM

good luck!

_slavo_ 06.25.2014 06:42 AM

Thank you Christoph!

Bytor Peltor 06.25.2014 07:50 AM

All the best my good sir!

Rob Instigator 06.25.2014 08:31 AM

you should end your presentation with a 10 minute free form drone jam!!!

_slavo_ 06.25.2014 08:59 AM

I did very well indeed!

Without drones, unfortunately, but with a self-confident grin on my face.

Rob Instigator 06.25.2014 09:07 AM

you should tell them all "I am going to be a father. I have propagated the species. My seed will one day rule the earth."

_slavo_ 08.07.2014 02:37 AM

Another one in one hour.
