Date: May 6th, 2021
Time: 7pm-8:30pm ET
Do you feel you need to “settle” for a career with low demand for oral communication?
Do you have a dream job that seems out of reach because you stutter?
Are you considering a career change, but worry that your stuttering will be a barrier to advancement?
Are you currently in a position where you defer public speaking to your colleagues?
Join us for an inspiring conversation with stutterers/PWS who have advanced in careers with high demand for public speaking. They will share their stories, perspectives, challenges, and successes. They will offer ideas for interviewing, press conferences, addressing large groups, briefings, self-advocacy, and more. A variety of occupations will be represented.
Many thanks to the generosity from the Katharyn Elizabeth Fell Demaree Fund for sponsoring this special Virtual Learning by Stuttering Foundation.
