He asked for volunteers to go first, then, when none were forthcoming, issued a timetable. I'm up in March.
What am I going to talk about? I have many areas of knowledge, but will any of them hold my colleagues' interest?
My boss's suggestion, inspired by my Viggen desktop wallpaper, was that I should speak on 'Swedish interceptors of the Cold War', but this is perhaps a little too eclectic.
So, what do you think I should talk about? (I do not guarantee that I will use the most popular pick, or even the funniest suggestion.)
On what subject should I address my colleagues?
Swedish interceptors of the Cold War
Life cycle and habits of the domestic gerbil
What is a 'furry'?
The Red Baron
Iditarod: the greatest race on Earth
What I did on my holidays
James Bond: feminist icon
I shouldn't be freaked about this. After all, I hold two certificates from the English Speaking Board, and when I was in the Air Training Corps my presentation on the Red Baron placed highly in a Wing-wide Public Speaking competition. And there's every chance this whole idea will die a death long before my turn.
