I have successfully completed a training session of presenting using a teleprompter.
As a former career Police officer and Detective I was regularly involved in presenting to groups of fellow officers. Much of this was videod for use in ongoing courses for other trainees. The subject matter would generally be that in which I was particularly experienced such as Victim and Suspect interviewing, Scenes of Crime procedures for Serious Sexual offences. I am extremely comfortable and natural in front of camera and a natural talker.

Survival Job

This is not something I have ever done however I am fiercely independent, strong both physically and mentally and happily spend time alone so perhaps this is something I might be up for ;-)
