Dream Nation 2014
Its 7:41pm on August the 28th, 2014. After a few hiccups, we are only minutes away from the start of the event. By now most of the audience is in the building and have found their seats and the excitement and energy in the room is steadily building. Right now I have sweat and a smile on my face as I do my final checks with each of my team members… they are all good. Everything is set, everyone is ready. Honestly, I can’t put how I feel into words. There is far too much adrenaline in my system to think straight; I’m nervous, I’m happy, I’m scared, I’m ready, I need 5 more minutes. I need to put on a brave face for my team. I want to hide in a corner but above all I’m excited. So much hard work by so many people was about to come to a dramatic finale. It’s now far too late to turn back. I give the technical team the thumbs up, the lights drop…. the room goes dead silent. Dream Nation 2014 was finally a reality!
