Ignite Phoenix #17-Part 2 Originally posted May 31, 2015
The venue was Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts, the event involved live music, food trucks, a bar, and well a beautiful day in Scottsdale, Arizona. The worry, but also calm that came with the process of putting together an outline of the key points of my presentation, talking to my coach for wisdom, and then putting the final product together. I am in the minority when it comes to public speaking, my fear doesn't come from the act, more like my perfectionist way of wanting to deliver the best speech I possibly could. Knowing that my parents were attending, and wanting to get the point across to them first then the rest of the audience second was daunting. My parents know I love music, and that I know a lot about music, but showing them I could speak to an audience was a true goal. Perhaps my passion for this music was my true fear, and yet I knew the more I practiced my presentation, the more I was going to get nervous. Thus, after last minute meetings, and talks with my AWESOME coach Bill, I believed I was ready to show the world why "EDM Makes Me Tick". I truly want to thank the team at Ignite Phoenix for the honor of presenting a topic that I am really passionate about, meeting other presenters with same passions for other topics, and the opportunity to join a non-profit that is truly great for the community.
