My upcoming presentations

My upcoming presentations

I was delighted to learn today that one of my planned presentations later this year was not going ahead. Don’t get me wrong- I like presentations. However, in addition to the time spent doing the presentation, is all the preparation time. As an extreme example, a number of presentations I have done or am to do this year are about the new Queensland Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act. It took me over 30  hours to prepare the paper for the first presentation!

Today’s events made me think about the number of presentations I expect to do before the year is out.

By my latest count, I expect that by the year’s end I will have done 14, or greater than one a month:

Those so far:

  • March: Legalwise- Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 (Qld)
  • April: City Fertility Centre: surrogacy issues for GP’s
  • May: Australia’s CEO Challenge: Family Violence Bill 2012
  • May: Australia’s CEO Challenge: Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 (Qld)

Those still ahead:

  • May: Australia’s CEO Challenge- presentation to West Africans about being a White Ribbon Ambassador- tomorrow
  • May: Surrogacy Australia national conference, Melbourne- this weekend
  • June: LexisNexis 9th annual family law summit Brisbane: surrogacy
  • June: Family Law Practitioners Association: Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 (Qld)
  • June: International Commission on Couple and Family Relations conference, Boston, workshop and presentation about how to get elements of the family law system working collaboratively (with Robin Purvis); presentation about Family Law Pathways network
  • July: NSW Fertility Counsellors Association training
  • August: possible: medico legal conference Brazil
