Spring 2019 Speaker Training at Suffolk University

Needs a location

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 2019 Spring Speaker Training. We'll gather for a full day of learning the skills that will prepare you to go out to schools, colleges, businesses, and faith communities, and other venues and 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. • Breakfast, lunch, drinks, and snacks will be supplied. • Cost: $75, $35 for seniors/students. • Inquire about group rates, sliding scale and scholarships. (Don't let the cost scare you away!) • Pre-registration required. (RSVP'ing here is not enough.) • Will be held at Suffolk University in Boston; exact location will be provided after you register. To Register: bit.ly/2EhYe8F. Also, feel free to email [masked] or call[masked] for more information.
