It is incumbent on each and every one of us to be able to communicate the needs and desires of people with disabilities to everyone we encounter. In order to do that, we need to understand what it is that drives us, as well as the people around us.

It’s important to use our heads to effect change. But we can also use our hearts.

In this session, we will discuss how to use our own motivation as fuel for others. The session will cover techniques for bringing our causes home to stakeholders in a way that is not only personal, genuine and compelling, but may also keep us engaged and safe from burnout.
