Practicing my speech

So, tomorrow I have a conference call about "prepping me" for my upcoming speech as a patient advocate.
I have given this speech many times and suddenly I need to be prepped. Ha ?

I will call them and probably give my speech over the phone ( which of course, always sounds like you are reading it )and take their feedback but I am still confused.
They are making way too many changes to this program and starting to make some of us a little uneasy about the politics games we have entered.
I have 6 people I have met recently or are friends with that wil be at this presentation. 6 new people interested in their product because of me and my success. Doesn't that count for something?
Still I will take my prepping and go on with my day.I'm not changing my speech two weeks before I give it thats for sure.
It's not like I have MS or anything and can re-learn a new speech in time. It's not like I have cognitive problems or anything.
There is a saying folks. If it's not broke, don't fix it. I have met some of the other advocates and you should be glad you have me. Extremely professional and I speak English properly !!

Cathy, I'm really interested in learning more about what you mean here - "They are making way too many changes to this program and starting to make some of us a little uneasy about the politics games we have entered."

I'm interested in knowing what it is exactly that Biogen-Idec/Elan are asking of their patients in becoming an official patient-advocate.
