Take up the challenge .. and prepare!!

It Β was the short Easter week, hence I was working 4 days. However, it was a full week with key meetings!! I started the countdown to the weekend and prep for the meetings….

Wednesday afternoon – 17th April 2019
Sitting in my desk and trying to complete a major presentation….
Strategic Comms Manager: Esther are you ready to go on radio?
Me: Β *in my mind – don’t you know I have enough deliverables this short week πŸ˜‚* Actual response: Hmmmm
Strategic Comms Manager: We need you to speak on radio on Friday (2 days away)
Me: *about to shy away from it and just focus on my deliverables for the week* Then I remember the confessions we had been making in church @covenantchristiancentre. Ok I will do it… you will assist me right 😁😁
She commits to sending discussion points.
Wednesday evening.. the poster was developed (just like that πŸ™ƒπŸ™‚πŸ˜€) Thinking Β *I really need to prepare for this but Thursday is filled with 2 major meetings*
Later in the evening, the radio producer contacted me for basic introduction.
Thursday morning: Enroute one of the meetings, I engaged my boss who is frequently on TV and radio. I got some useful radio presentation tips from him!! Followed up on getting the talking points.
Thursday evening: Reached out to my mentor to get further media presentation tips. The producer sent me possible questions for the session.
Lagos traffic ooo, stuck in it for over 2 hours plus. Got home and spent with hubby and some time preparing for the session. I slept well 😁
Friday morning (the day!!!)
Woke up in good time and started with worship – one of my strongest weapons 😁😁
Spent more time preparing for the interview. Got Taxify and I was there just before 10am
Connected physically with the producer… we gisted about development, technology Et al.
10:20 – we moved upstairs… Buzzed my office colleagues to remind them it was almost time. Everyone would be listening… opportunity for feedback afterwards ☺️☺️
10:30 ready set GO!!
It was a good one!! Feedback has been amazing.. you can watch it viaΒ https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=355657581738111&id=219647158097067&_rdr
I am happy I went for it!! I really could have declined it but remembered the prayers for enlargement and new doors😁😁😁
Let’s be willing to take on new challenges and reach out for assistance too.
Have an awesome new week and let’s keep growing!!
