Singapore Dec 3 & i come (heheh)

My forthcoming speaking engagement (see below). A sequel to (i suspect) the positive response of my last act (hehe) at Renaissance Kuala Lumpur recently. Flattering to get invited to speak, but the pressure continues to mount as the days draw nearer to the actual presentation. Stuff lingering in your mind...ermmm..who will the audience relate to you? can you engage them? is it going to bore them to death? are the materials adequate or are they expecting more? should I go down the tom peters or de bono's style of presentation? or should I do it like my usual MBA lectures? what about jokes? how many is enuf? avoid political, gender-bias or ethnocentric jokes...hmmm but for 30 or 40 minutes...suddenly you find that there wasn't enuf time to long as you got the mesage across or that you have triggered their attention...i should think the mission is accomplished! hahaha...
