A small auditorium of 100 business men and women in a business park outside Lisbon. Most are Portuguese entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
I am on the Entrepreneurship panel with three other speakers. A mayor passionate about sustainability from Ericeira, Portugal and two bio-technology innovators.
I was more dynamic live, where you could see my slides too. They really drove the presentation. And it distracted the viewer from my nervous rambling.
My intention was to highlight why people (specifically the business community) should care about innerpreneurs.

Take a chance on me:
It was my first professional speaking opportunity. On an untraditional business topic that very few people know anything about. When all they knew was my words, Gesentrepreneur took a huge chance by inviting me to speak. I’m just some Canadian geek girl with a blog and weird ideas. I am so grateful to them for believing in me, and the innerpreneur idea. I hope my appreciation is evident in in the article I wrote for the Founder, Franciso Banha.
