We were invited to give a talk to 150 young people who are responsible for putting together Drug trials at MSD. In London. I had nerves when we left home this morning.
But that all disappeared. We were ushered through a side door straight on to the Stage. All very daunting sitting there looking at a sea of faces looking at you,While we were introduced and a bio of Mavis was made. I thought gosh is it only me and Mavis Talking. But yes it was. I got a grip of myself and I was called upon first.. The reception was a good one I remember I made a couple of off the cuff comments which got a laugh. That broke the Ice. I launched into my talk with no nerves at all . I got lots of laughter which gave me inspiration to carry on. When I was done I got a rousing thank you. Then Mavis was introduced. She did her talk from the heart and as always it was another success ful talk. I was amazed when 4 separate ladies came and spoke to me and admitted that I was so inspirational and my talk was so emotional that they were unable to stop the tears. Its never my intention to do that,but the story is told from the heart and it is what it is. But all in all a lovely audience. Thank you to all.
