April Monthly Chapter Meeting

April 19, 2024 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am ADT

Join us as we dig deeper into our ‘Behind the Mic’ events and host a morning workshop and discussion.

This will be a hybrid workshop, with those who are geographically located close to one another encouraged to use co-working spaces to help bring the learning to life.

Collectively joining a virtual room, the morning will be broken into two parts; the first being a deeper dive discussion into the Unity content and the second part being our very own ‘Experts Showcase’, where a member will present and lead a discussion around their own topic of expertise.

For April, we are delighted that our expert showcase will be Denis Boudreau of CAPS Quebec:

Crafting Messages for All: The Key to Inclusive Speaking

” Professional speakers like ourselves spend countless hours perfecting our message, improving our delivery, and finding the best ways to captivate our audiences. Yet, despite these efforts, roughly 40% of our audiences made up of people with disabilities, older individuals, and those marginalized by current technology practices still feel left out! As you design strategies to deliver your message, how much thought are you putting into the impact disabilities and ageing might have on your audience’s ability to truly connect with you and your message? It’s a stark reality that many speakers overlook as they miss out on countless opportunities to connect more deeply with a large segment of their audience – and believe me, the financial implications of this oversight are real! Curious about what you can do to change that narrative? Join me as we explore the top 10 strategies to tailor your presentations so they resonate with, and truly include, everyone in the room. Together, let’s build a better understanding of how to make every talk we give accessible, so nobody’s left out when it comes to learning, benefiting, and belonging.”
