Invitation to T-SQL Tuesday #41 – Presenting and Loving it!

It's been almost two years since I last hosted T-SQL Tuesday, and I'm very happy to be doing so again! If you're not already familiar, T-SQL Tuesday was the brainchild of Adam Machanic (@AdamMachanic), who prophesized that we all could benefit from "a recurring, revolving blog party" with a new topic given each month. This month's T-SQL Tuesday will take place on Tuesday, April 9, 2013.

What's the Topic?

This month the prompt is how did you come to love presenting? What was the first time you gave a presentation in front of a group and really enjoyed it? Was it something that was required of you in school? Something you did in the workplace? Were you inspired by other SQL community members and thought "I think I can do that too"? Whatever your story is, I'd love to hear it. **Not a presenter? Not a problem! **Feel free to chime in with whatever you like that's related to either presenting or SQL Server in general.
