Charlotte's response: It’s hard to choose one! Probably supporting NHS England with the CCG authorisation process.

Our question: What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?

Charlotte's response: Why do children wake-up earlier at the weekend than during the week?

Charlotte's response: No! Many people suggested it would be a good fit but it took me a while to accept their advice.
