Nous habitons tous dans un yellow submarine... or two men needing talking help

I'll shortly be en route to Liverpool for the first time to speak at Wednesday's Specialist Schools and Academies Trust modern languages event. It's also the first time that I'm doing a talk that I've only ever done before solo (Mr McIntosh goes to school) with a partner, blog friend and colleague, Joe Dale. Talk about collaborative learning in action ;-)

I'm quite nervous about it, tbh. He's blogged about the conference outline but our preparation has taken place over a wiki. If it were something completely new presentation-wise I think it would be easier to prepare but having been asked by the conference organisers to prepare one thing and then asked to co-present after the fact we've been left with a great opportunity to have some naked conversations, as it were. The only problem is that I don't know Joe as well as Shel knows Robert, but I'm worried that over-preparation will lead to staleness in whatever repartie we muster.

Any last minute advice on how to get the most out of this presentation/conversation/workshoppy thang?

Ewan, I listened to half of your Podcast from SETT06 (was interupted/distracted). My one peice of advice is to remember you're in a foreign country and you should speak slowly so your listeners can understand. Don't shout just speak slow. :D LOL

We'll be fine Ewan. A few notes and we'll have a right good blether.

Nous pouvons résoudre cela.

Joe :)

What about a glass of something to light you up? Seem to recall that the Stormhoek had that effect ... ;-p
