My talking career has begun.

Today at Christchurch University in Canterbury I was invited to talk at a British dyslexia event.  To talk about my life and my book.  Scary I got there at 9 a.m. the receptionist said you must be John Tipping which was the first time I had been recognized.  So we went into a small room where we had coffee and I talked to a few people and at 9.30 we all went up to a lecture hall and Janette my friend for quite a few years started talking about the work she does in the British dyslexia Association.  I learnt so much of what they’re trying to do in changing people’s thinking about dyslexia.  I was speaking at 11.45 my turn came and I was introduced. As I was getting up my head was screaming inside but I got up there and took a deep breath, and guess what, off I went like if I had been talking to rooms full of people for years I talked for half an hour and then took questions.  I loved every minute of it.
