I've been doing that for past 5 years and this has been one of my ways of dealing with the situation - writing here shortly before and shortly after the crucial moment. it helps.

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.

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.
