When I was a newbie in brand management, the thought of being in a boardroom filled with marketing professionals while I would do a presentation, always made me nervous and jittery. No matter how prepared I was and I have a well thought of and flawless presentation up on my sleeve, the idea of getting bombarded with questions after the presentation terrified me no end. Later on however, I got used to it and presentations became a part of my everyday life in corporate management.
In every presentation, the use of visuals/graphics via equipments just like one of those epson lcd projectors always came in handy. I always relied heavily on my Executive Assistant who was technically skilled to prepare the graphics seamlessly.
That was just one part of my corporate life. Stressful and nerve wracking as it may have been, I always looked forward to challenges and delivering the objective was my ultimate goal. Everything was timed and meeting deadlines was an integral part of the job.
Those were the days. Sometimes I miss it. However, I love the life that I have now. There are no more deadlines to beat, no boss to report to and no more US counterparts to deal with. Oh, and the presentations? I don’t think I miss doing it at all. That was the one thing that I wished I would not have done at all. It came with the job though, so I had no choice but embrace it.
