“I will never stand behind a lectern again! I will always need to have a stage!” “I used some of the theatre techniques for my presentation [at a research conference] - standing with my feet apart, breathing properly. It helped me.” “I spend 50 hours per week in my office, not talking to people. [A project like this] is a healthy thing to do if you are doing an Arts and Humanities PhD.”
