Well, tonight was a first – I delivered my first ever after dinner speech.
It happened at PyCon UK, and I was asked a few months ago to do it. I was a little nervous, having never done one before, but it seemed to go really well and the crowd were very responsive and interactive. I had an absolute blast doing it.
I think I might offer this as something to do at conferences in addition to the usual speaking slots. Great fun. 🙂
