On Friday, June 20, 2014 Terry, Jason, & Brandon attended the “Speaking Out” conference put on by the “People First Peterborough Chapter”. They had a chance to network and mingle with other advocacy groups to share ideas and stories.
There were 2 keynote speakers. Marshall & Laura shared their accomplishments of inclusion for themselves and their communities.
The gentlemen attended 2 workshops. One was on “Speaking Out” in which new attitudes were discussed for empowerment. The second workshop was on how to “Dress For Success” informing those attending that you have one chance for a first impression and to make the best of it. All those who participated received their own personalized binders which they will be sharing with our own advocacy group “AIM”. All participants had a great time & cannot wait to share their binders of self advocacy.
