Seminars Again

But on a happier note this time. I got an invit to speak at another seminar. And instead of blithely taking it on, only to wallow in piteous self-loathing months later when I have to start preparing my slides and seminar speech at midnight the morning before the seminar itself, I simply put up my colleague's name for it. She absolutely hates public speaking. But how else do you learn to love something like that, except by doing it over and over and over again?

They say if you try something 11 times, you will learn to love it. Whether it's bitter gourd, public speaking or fleeing from a herd of stampeding elephants. All must try one.

Anyway, I mentioned the topic she was speaking on to 2 colleagues today (45 minutes on "Drafting Warranties and Indemnities for Share Sale Agreements") and they both made their respective monkey chewing lemon faces. As if to say there's absolutely no chance in hell they would ever be caught speaking about something so boring. What's so boring about it, I asked. Granted, it's about how to draft something, but look at the material she has to work with - Warranties. Indemnities. The absolutely gripping page-turner of every legal document. I would be surprised if people in the audience didn't punch the air intermittently throughout her speech and cry "Bravo! Bravo!" or wander into the aisles and start spinning like whirling dervishes in a religious frenzy. Sometimes when I'm reviewing a document, I can barely contain myself.

Well if that's so incredibly boring, what kind of seminar topics would you find interesting, I asked my erstwhile colleagues. And this is the list they came up with.

1. Intellectual Property Rights of the Amateur Internet Pornographer
2. How To Beat the McNaughten Test
3. 10 Brighter Ways to Evade Tax

You'll prolly get the best turnout with No. 1, especially if you'll be showing examples.
