My first lecture - wish me luck!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Tonight I will be giving my first lecture on cat behavoir! I am giving a talk about understanding cat behavior and addressing cat behavior problems at the Israeli Cat Welfare Society. I don't know how many people will be there, but there should be a few dozens I think.

I'll go now to prepare my presentation slides (not too many) and get prepared.

Wish me luck!

You are going to do so well, they'll keep asking you back for more lectures. Best of luck. Don't picture them naked though, it really doesn't work & can actually make you lose your train of thought. It helps if you pick one or 2 people in the group and prentend you are talking directly too them.

Thank you everyone!!!

It was pretty good actually. I really enjoyef myself and the questions time was really long because everyone wanted to tell me about their cats and ask for advice. I think that almost half the people came over in the end to tell me how much they enjoyed it. I'm now booked for my next lecture - about cats and pregnancy/babies/kids (and I'll have the belly to show for it ) for next month. They want me to do a lecture once a month (they asked for twice but that's a bit too much for now).

It's all volunteering by the way, I don't get money, but the people that come are asked to make a donation for the cats (they are a great no-kill shelter that takes excellent care of some 400 cats!!). So it's nice to do something that I like so much and at the same time help cat owners as well as the cats in the shelter.

Hopefully, with time it will help me establish a name for myself as a cat expert and maybe lead to some clients that need behavior conselling.

Again, thank you all for your kind words! Your support means a lot to me! A lot of the knowledge I have has come from these forums and I am very grateful for that!

Anne - congratulations! I love being asked to speak - it is wonderful to be able to share your knowledge with people who care about cats. I don't get to post very much anymore, but wanted to give you an atta girl! Also, I met some wonderful people from Your cat society at the No Kill conference in August and I have a tape they gave me that tells what they are all about. Good job!
