On national TV

September 30, 2008

This morning I went on national TV for the first time in my life – quite an exiting experience. Naturally I had my concerns last night before I vent to sleep, but with a hectic morning, most of the stress and fear went away.

I was on the morning show at TV2, one of the most viewed programs in Denmark, and together with Anders Hjort from The Danish Electricity Savings Trust, we showed the new Web portal My Home. My Home is a web portal for home energy savings, and home automation, we have made at Hello Group over the past year. A very big project containing everything from automatic online power meter readings, to savings advice, a full scale floor plan drawing program, and integration with real live home automation, where you can monitor and control your home appliances at the touch of a button on your computer or cell phone.
As the show was live there was little room for mistake and screw-ups, and even thou we did experience some technical difficulties during the live run. Everything went well and the light turned on in my apartment (we had live broadcast from my living room directly available in the TV studio).

All in all a nice experience and something I believe will make me stronger for future presentations. I have always admired the people on the show, where its obvious its there first time on TV, and have had the mantra that if I could appear on national TV, without making a complete fool of my self, I thing I can do anything.

Judge for your self.
