Joomla! User Group Melbourne

Last night I hosted my first ever Joomla! User Group meeting. For those who have known me a long time, public speaking in front of strangers is not my thing - I'm a lifelong introvert, which is why I'm trying to get better at it now.

I love the fact my kids are taught and encouraged to do this at school; they're already far more confident than I ever was - we never had any focus on public speaking at school, at all. 

I've managed to put on a confident face and bluff my way through ever since, and many people who I've met in recent times have no idea of the fear this used to inspire.

I'm only mildly horrified watching myself on this video, so I guess that's a win and things can only get better! Next month I'm standing up and doing a presentation! Not daunted, not daunted at all... #okalittledaunted #butanyway #introvert 😬😂
