From Panic Attacks to Public Speaking and Beyond - My Journey

Techorama came to the Netherlands for the first time in 2018. The biggest .Net conference in the Netherlands with a host of amazing speakers!

Suffering from severe anxiety it was going to be a tough couple of days, but still, I wanted to go!

This is a story about how a panic attack on day one of the conference, followed by a couple of chance meetings lead me to overcome my fear of flying, fear of travelling and fear of people in order to speak at my first conference.
