Her thoughts rushed back to the Mr Bracknell, who believed in her and gave her the chance to clinch this deal for the company. She visualised the smirk on her colleagues Joe’s face if she failed, and then thought about the commission she so needed for her baby’s eye operation. She quickly strapped up her thoughts and told herself failure was not even an option she needs to make a quick comeback from her stage fright. She willed herself to remember the rest of her presentation.
She tucked her stomach in and took a deep breath and cleared her throat. Her mind was still blank and the flash cards looked a bit blurred. She decided to go for the kill and speak from her heart. “Ladies and Gentlemen imagine that you were caught in a sea without a lifejacket with no other boats in sight to rescue you, there are only two outcomes you would either swim or sink.” She wiped her hand on her skirt. Her audience leaned moved forward with puzzled looks on their faces. She immediately recalled her sales pitch and continued with the analogy of 'caught without a life jacket' to sell insurance to the company directors.
