Last week tonight, me & Kitty just got off the stage after presenting our first international speech at Young Living APAC Leadership Summit 2016 ( I know, such a mouthful!). We were representing Singapore & Indonesia, sharing our first hand experience building Young Living business in a new market to about 200 people from all across the region. It was a very humbling experience to say the least.
I always believe things happened for a reason and we are placed in a certain time, certain place with certain people for a purpose. If we were asked to do it last year, Kitty might peed on her pants (that’s what she always says!) and I might just squat on the stage clutching my tummy (that’s how my mentors & training buddies remember me).
When I attended my PT (Presenter Training) last year, it wasn’t planned for this. When Kitty & I decided to go to APAC together this year, we didn’t even know yet that we’ll be presenting.
We prepared everything in a month’s time. Deciding on the topic & material were the easier part, the practice was a bit tricky but we managed. Feeling-wise, I was kinda numb and didn’t really feel anything until the 2nd day of the summit.
Fast forward to D-day, I practically marinated myself with so many oils since I woke up ( and we woke up late! Missing 1st hour of Hal Gregerson session, he’s amazing!! ). I used a lot of Gathering, Humility, Believe, Inspiration & Clarity oils through out the day. Faith kindly let us use her Valor, too. I felt a bit nervous but strangely didn’t have to go back & forth the restroom like when I did Live Video on Facebook. I didn’t feel like running away and hide like when I was doing classes in YL office and saw people started coming in.
Other than the oils that help me stay grounded, there were just so much positive energy & love sent our way that made us stand tall on that stage that day. Can I just say that our One Drop team are the best? Some of them stayed up until very late with me & Kitty to watch us practice, gave feedback & encouragement. Tantri had no choice other than to be our “loyal” listener (well, we all stayed in one room so she’s kinda stuck with us. In the end she memorized our speech and had her own show in our room ;p).
Off course the presentation wasn’t perfect, but it didn’t matter anymore. I think it is safe to say that we have our points delivered, feelings imparted and apparently we’re quite entertaining because many times the audience laughed at Kitty’s drama (pun intented!), or me being forgetful and muttering things that just came out to me without filter.
Btw, not just me & Kitty, we also have Faith Teo presenting before us. Man, isn’t she inspiring? Her 1 hour presentation was so aunthentic, filled with laugh, hands clapping and warmth, she totally rocked it!
Given a chance, will I do this again? Yes, in a heartbeat I will!
