What I Did Was Much Worse
I've spent the last few week preparing both physically and mentally for my big presentation today. Portfolio has been organised, pitch has been rehearsed and alarm has been set. As far as I was able to gather I was going into that boardroom at the best position possible: the judges liked my idea and awarded it 6 out of 6 when compared against the judging criteria. And now I get to unleash my personality on the panel with a 30 minute presentation? It was in the bag, baby.
Remember the part about setting the alarm? Well as usual I was able to snatch defeat defeat from the jaws of victory by arriving A WHOLE HOUR LATE. Why? because for some reason I was convinced the meeting was at 11:30 instead of 10:30. At the end they were really nice about it and the presentation couldn't have gone better. And now we wait.
