Job Done!!

Posted 20-01-2006 at 19:21 by harwood red

Well that's it, the culmination of 6 months work was presented today and thankfully it went pretty well. There was one point when my colleague got slightly tongue tied and needed a drink and kept apologising, so to cover it up I told them all about Marg's advice and that we were stood up there imagining they were all naked or even constipated, which raised a few laughs ... but me being me decided to take it one step further and ended the comment with "And I can assure you it's not a pretty sight!!" followed by going bright red!! oops, luckily it was all taken in good humour.

I did get a bit click happy at one time and managed to click through 3 slides in one go on powerpoint so then had to back track, but other than that I am really pleased with how it went. In fact at the end we got a round of applause!! And the Chief Exec actually commented on how he couldn't believe it was our first time and that the information we had given them was exactly the kind of thing they wanted even though some of the issues naturally pointed fingers at some of them in the room!!! (Well their depts anyway).

So thanks to you all for your kind messages of support and I can happily say I feel a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders.. it doesn't end there though as they immediately decided from the info we had given them that the whole process needs redesigning so thats our next job. Fortunately they have agreed that we can do this whilst going back to our day to day jobs..There's going to be more discussions next week

On a final note. Have continued the walking and the swimming (although did miss swimming tonight) and was weighed today and I am pleased to announce that I have lost 4lb Told you there was a weight lifted off my shoulders

    Had a thought, the fact that you were apparently concerned about quite a few things could be half the reason you were feeling a bit down, so that begs the question, do you now feel a little better having achieved some weight loss and made a success of your presentation? I am glad things are going a little more your way, given recent form, even the footy cancellation may be a good thing. lol
