How to Start a Talk

A recent talk at the London School of Economics by Carne Ross, author of a book called The Leaderless Revolution: How ordinary people will take power and change politics in the 21st century, began with this:

I was preparing the talk this afternoon at my beloved cousin’s, where I’m staying. ’cause I don’t live in London anymore. She said, “How are you, Carne, how are you doing?” I said, “I’m a bit nervous, to be honest.” She said, “Don’t worry, Carne, I’ve heard lots of bad talks at the LSE.”

    Wow- that talk was extremely inspiring! I wish his new book was available over here, I’d love to read it. Maybe when my current TBR list is a bit shorter, I’ll go ahead and order it from amazonUK.
