So….I have been “booked”. My first speaking engagement.
It will take place April 7th at the Women’s Fitness Clubs of Canada in Richmond Hill. They hold a fundraising event every year called One Brave Night and it runs from 10pm-6am to help raise awareness for Mental Health. I will be speaking at 9:30pm to kick off the night. I am waiting to meet with the committee to find out what they want me to focus on, talk about and the messaging.
I know that it’s great to have speakers who are recovered and help give guidance as to how they achieved their success. But it’s equally important to hear from people that are on their way, still struggling but doing what they need to in order to get help. People can relate to both sides of the disease, so it’s important to give them both angels.
I will keep you posted once everything is confirmed and afterwards I will publish my “speech”.
