Dr. Danny

IMG_7831First there was Dr. Ruth.

Then there was Dr. Phil.

I think there was a British one in there too, called Dr. Nick or something, but now there’s Dr. Danny.

I was amazed to be asked back to my hometown of Dundee recently to be given an honorary doctorate by the University of Dundee – the same place my dad worked in the late 70s and early 80s, and on the same stage my mum got her Masters.

They said I had to make a speech, though, so I did.

It’s just Seven Things I Know.

Things that may or may not be useful to people about to leave university, and start The Next Stage.

I was asked afterwards by a few people (maybe four) to put the words online, but thought this would be better.

My thanks again to the University – and also to the editor-in-chief of the Beano, Mike Stirling, who interviewed me on stage the night before.

I’m really proud to come from Dundee, and it was fantastic to be back.

So here’s the speech – Seven Things I Know.
