What is the biggest thing you have recently learnt you wish you had learnt earlier? by David Brooks

After a lifetime of hearing how frightening it is to speak in front of a group of people, surveys have found that a majority of people fear public speaking more than they do death, I’ve learned that not only is it not frightening but that I actually enjoy doing it.

Conveying information or sharing experiences in a way that informs or adds value to an audience is rewarding in a way that I never would have imagined. Learning this has also allowed me the freedom to be more open in general.

About David Brooks

I moved from Toronto to the Niagara Region in Ontario in 2015 with my wife and 3 dogs. After commuting back and forth to Toronto for a few years I semi-retired. During the pandemic I saw how unprepared most people and organizations were to deal with lockdowns and mandates that affected us all. After reading that continued lockdowns would mean that 30% of businesses in Toronto would not be able to reopen I began learning about Business Continuity Management and have been certified as an ISO Auditor for the 22301 standard.
