Episode #12

Does public speaking make you nervous? I was never one to be phased by speaking in front of others… until I spoke on my first panel.

I recently had the pleasure of being a first-time panellist at a career advice event for young students. Towards the end of last year, I partnered with generationYOU – an organisation providing students and early-stage professionals with tools and hacks to help them excel in their careers. I was invited to become not only a guest publisher on their Career Hacks blog series, but also a panellist at their yearly Brisbane one-day event.

This episode narrates my journey through conversations as I nervously participate in the panel discussion, covering what exactly the future of work will look like.
