What do you do to get outside your comfort zone?

 In presentation skills, public spealking, TEDx

What do you do to get outside your comfort zone and stretch yourself? For me, I try and do one TEDx each year. Watch me explain below why I do this with the stage from TEDxODED (Welsh Government) in the background.

Back in 2014, I performed my 1st TEDx talk. Even though I had delivered nearly 300 public presentations by this stage, I was still petrified. I realised that TEDx takes me out of my comfort zone, in a healthy and challenging way.

I think to maintain our resilience in our business and personal lives, we all need to do something that really challenges us and gets the adrenaline flowing.
