    Yeah, I've been asked to speak at a conference in Brussels as part of the charity I assist. We specialise in advising staff at universities about how they can accommodate different students with different disability requirements of a university by university basis. I've been assisting for my local university for the last year. Now the head of the charity wants me to talk about this at a conference in Brussels along side some professors,

    anyone talked about their charity work before and know what kind of things they should say/not say?

    Firstly well done for volunteering in such a noble Charity. Secondly perhaps a good start might be to state why the Charity was established, what it has done in the past (perhaps mention a case study) and is doing currently and what it hopes to achieve in the Future?

    Yeah - mostly I've been doing the epilepsy side of it. Plus I've only been part of one project, not the actual charity really. Case study wise we've been compiling feedback and creating a report to be sent out to all the universities. My point is I'm not really representative of the charity, I've only been with them one year.

    But if they want you to be there, that shows they trust you and think you are very suitable for that
