SPEAK AT YOUR EVENT
What to expect
If you listen to the podcast, you know I can present complex ideas in plain language. I do the same as a speaker, using my real life anecdotes from my work as a therapist in numerous settings. You also know that I can present about trauma... without being traumatic. I don't use specific details of traumatic events. It's just not necessary.
Informative, fun & interactive
I don't just stand and talk. I use many tools throughout the presentation to boost audience involvement:
live polls - Audiences can use their preferred devices to interact with polling software anonymously. The results are shown on a big screen immediately, creating a fun experience that is free of judgment.
video & audio clips - You'd be surprised at how effective a clip from the Office can be at showing defensive autonomic states. Or how Ferris Bueller's Day Off can be the perfect example of vocal prosody.
large & small group discussion - I fluctuate between the two based on how much time is available and the participation level of the audience. For example, I found an audience of police officers to be reluctant to speak in a large group, so I switched to the small group, which they had a much easier time with. And then I used that to transition back to a large group format.
fun "experiments" - things that are done in vivo to experience state shifts, like talking to a partner while the other is not allowed to show facial expression.
As part of the speaking fee, I will advertise to my listeners and followers about the event and where they can learn more about your organization. Typically, it will be mentioned in:
my "Announcements" portion of the podcast
Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn & Facebook post
blog post along with new content created from the event
My listener, reader and follower base is rapidly growing daily, especially on Instagram. They are a highly engaged group of what I call #traumanerds.
I request to record and use the audio/video of the presentation, which will be further opportunity to advertise and cross-promote for both of our purposes.
