CAPS National Virtual Programming

Embrace the change to truly engage today’s diverse audiences
with Lenora Billings-Harris CSP, CPAE and Denis Boudreau

Session Description

Diversity in professional speaking is no longer just welcomed, it’s expected. And so, “one-size-fits-all approaches to speaking just don’t cut it anymore. What if your messaging could resonate with everyone in the room, regardless of their background, beliefs, or abilities? Join us on September 19th for Embrace the Change to Truly Engage Today’s Diverse Audiences”, where we‘ll dig deep into the game-changing practices of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in professional speaking. Learn hands-on strategies to adapt your communication style, ensure that your message hits home for everyone, and make a lasting impression that bridges the gap between you and diverse audiences. Trust us, this is the upgrade your speaking skills have been waiting for.
