Let’s be honest, I’m not sure about others, but I don’t expect gifts when I do presentations but it’s always nice to receive. But I usually give them away (usually to a participant) ’cause I don’t drink.
But thanks to Kerry J I received the absolute prefect presentation gift for EDNA’s Blogging – it’s a conversation — two wonderful chocolate Murray Cod’s. Honestly what else would you give a chocolate loving fish farming lecturer.
About Haigh’s Chocolate Murray Cod
Murray Cod is the largest freshwater fish species found in Australia and occurs naturally in Eastern parts of Australia. Unfortunately wild Murray Cod numbers are declining. We farm this species in ponds and intensive recirculations systems.
Haigh’s Chocolates has donating part proceeds from the sale of chocolate Murray Cods towards Waterfind Environment Fund for improving the health of Australia’s river systems (the fish even came with their own letter!!!). What an excellent idea!! And they tasted delicious!
The Extra Gift
What Kerry J didn’t realise was that she had sent two gifts not one! Shhhh don’t tell her . Mr9, my youngest son, saw the chocolates (apparently weren’t appealing to him) and stole the bubble wrap which he spent hours playing with (check out this video!).
You can check out the podcast from my online session for EDNA’s Blogging – it’s a conversation here!! Thanks Kerry J for putting so much thought into the present from both me and Mr9 — we both enjoyed them a lot.
Meanwhile what is the best gift you have received as a presenter or participant at a conference?
