heh the only experience I have this is with the military.. and I got “voluntold” to do this stuff all the time.

For your situation I think it depends. How unreasonable is it for you to get familiar with the material? Some things are a not too bad and you can look at this as a way to expand your expertise. But other things are more for the experts and you should definitely say something.

DH is going to a conference in a few weeks where one of his peers will be speaking on Customer Satisfaction Surveys. His peer has a 35% (where 100% is perfect) rating in the topic he’s giving a talk on.

Fake it ’till you make it, baby!

@BrandNewBride:  Maybe they’re hoping his coworker will learn something while preparing his presentation 😉

@leenh78:  well maybe the more stuff you do like this will make you a better public speaker! It’s always a good thing to have that skill, even if you hate doing it (I know I do!)
