SpeakOUT's Fall 2020 Online Speaker Training

Online event

SpeakOUT is a community of speakers working to create a world free of homo-bi-transphobia and other forms of prejudice by telling the truths of our lives. We speak from our hearts. We speak from our own experiences. We speak to dispel stereotypes. And we speak to let other members of the LGBTQIA community know they are not alone. We invite you to join us at Suffolk University for our 2020 Spring Speaker Training. We are launching our first online speaker training this fall to prepare our members to represent SpeakOUT during online engagements. We are splitting the training into two sessions. Saturday: 9am-12:30pm and Sunday: 10am-1:00pm. There will be breaks during the sessions so we don't get too Zoomed out! The training will prepare you to tell your own story in an effective and personal way. Novice and veteran speakers alike will learn and practice valuable skills like setting the right tone, overcoming fear, handling difficult questions, and crafting your personal story. You will work on your stories in smaller breakout groups. • Cost: $50 standard, $25 for seniors/students. • Sliding scale and scholarships are available. (Don't let the cost scare you away!) • Pre-registration required. (RSVP'ing here is not enough.) To Register: bit.ly/OnlineFall2020SpeakerTraining. Important to sign up as soon as you can so that you will receive information and materials ahead of time. Feel free to email [masked] or call[masked] for more information.
