What made the entire experience even more exciting was the fact that I gave a 20-minute talk. I'd given a talk to similarly-sized audience (circa 150 people) once before, but this time most of the listeners knew more about the general subject more than myself. But I always enjoy being in the spotlight, so that was reasonably enjoyable even.
Even though this was my very-first conference talk I was reasonably content with the outcome. And got some very useful comments and feedback that I am sure will greatly help me in my research, which was one of the primary reasons why I wanted to give a talk so early-on in the doctorate.
If you're interested here's the presentation that I gave - it's generally about a proposed method to try and pro-actively deal with the space debris problem to try and save money while getting the most out of it.
