Public speaking can serve the purpose of transmitting information, telling a story, motivating people to act or encouraging people.

The Morning Routine

It is always around this time of year, when the weather has started to change and I finally get to leave the house in the light.

Throughout the whole winter, I sit in my car on the motorway and it’s pitch black outside. The headlights create a stream into my windscreen and it’s close to being mesmerising. I spend half of the year driving to and from work in the dark.

The Long Trip To Work

I drive to work. Like the majority of people I know, my journey doesn’t work on public transport. I get up and drive every morning.

There’s nothing wrong with my drive, I hit a couple of A roads and then the M25 and another motorway off into the countryside. I quiet enjoy my journey to and from work and I chose to live this far away from work. It allows me a complete separation from all aspects of my job. I will literally never see any of my colleges outside of work.

My New World At Work

I work in a pretty typical office. We have a ring of offices around the outside of our floor, where the important people sit all day long doing nothing important. Then there are the rest of us in the middle, a vast open plan office, made up of clusters and pods of desks.

It’s a friendly place to work, as you never really know who you will be working next to each day. The hot desking policy is rife and very actively encouraged.
