I'm about to go speak as a 'community representative' at NZ Drug Foundation's winter series of talks called Speaker and Soup. I'm talking about grassroots early-warning systems for detecting new/unexpected/dangerous substances as they emerge, and the issues around implementing such systems.

This is the first time I've stood up publicly and advocated for drug-related harm reduction.

Nervous poo appears to be required. Ain't evolution awesome?

Knock 'em dead. Or at least talk a little sense into them.

Turns out it went really well, and I have a pocketful of business cards from people who want to collaborate. I'm chuffed. ;-)

Congratulatipons!

And you'll be fine! After all, here on LJ you have no problem talking to lots of people about the subject, and people sitting silently in the audience are no different. *keeps fingers crossed*

ETA: Oh, I see now it's already done! And you survived, cool! :)
