All of my hogmanay celebrations, in Scotland, were in ‘Glasgow’
actually in Greenock.
So naturally I am partial to Hogmanay in Glasgow.
In a different phase of my life I used to get asked, at least once a year,
to come and do presentations at the ‘National Exhibition & Conference Center’
when they were hosting various large IT expositions.
One year I was the Keynote Speaker for the entire show
and addressed a crowd close to 800.
Largest crowd I have yet addressed.
It was a tad intimidating, even for me, with my years of experience,
to stand there and see an ocean of faces.
But, when I got started, and they started laughing
(given that I am noted for my humor when presenting),
I LOVED it and didn’t want to stop.
