So the quote below in response to a speaker job to which I applied and you are allowed to laugh. I did.
“Hi Anne, I hardly think that that a speech on mental health and suicide is appropriate for our Wine Tasting and Steak Dinner fundraiser.”
So yes, I brazenly submit my speaker topics to wine tasting functions. Why not? And she brazenly implied it was inappropriate in her response and I fell off the chair laughing. Charles would have made a hundred jokes about this.
It’s such a normal subject for me now. And obviously not the case with someone looking for a speaker for her wine and steak dinner fundraiser. It won’t stop me.
