Amid all the craziness this week, there is an article that talks about what a lot of us fear: speaking in front of people. Through out my life I’ve talked to artist, celebrities, politicians, sport starts, ministers, business men, and a lot of regular everyday people about talking in public, and just about everyone has a butterfly or two in their stomach. Check out the article at the link below.
The Guardian: “Michael Bay’s stagefright has done us all a favor“
“Transformers director Michael Bay says his epic meltdown in Vegas yesterday might not make him popular with technology nerds … but also says it hasn’t exactly hurt him with the ladies. Bay was on “TMZ Live” explaining why he freaked out and walked off stage during a big presentation at the CES convention. It’s not like he’s never been on stage … he says he’s been front and center hundreds of times, but explains why this one was different. Here’s the deal … Samsung should kiss Michael’s ass, because now everyone’s talking about its newfangled TV.”
Wow! I just embarrassed myself at CES – I was about to speak for Samsung for this awesome Curved 105-inch UHD TV. I rarely lend my name to any products, but this one is just stellar. I got so excited to talk, that I skipped over the Exec VP’s intro line and then the teleprompter got lost. Then the prompter went up and down – then I walked off. I guess live shows aren’t my thing.
But I’m doing a special curved screen experience with Samsung and Transformers 4 footage that will be traveling around the world.
