We have just booked a training session for our Speakers Project, which will take place in the morning of Saturday 11th June in Richmond, Surrey.
Over the years, we have discovered that one method of raising awareness triumphs above all others; telling a real life story. Facts and figures are definitely useful, but to really make people sit up and listen, we need your help.
We are just starting to roll out this exciting new project, the aim of which is to train and support members of the transplant and organ donation community to give talks and presentations. Have you been touched by organ donation in some way? Perhaps you have watched a friend go through the struggles of waiting, maybe a family member became a donor. Are you yourself a transplant recipient? Whatever your link, you could share your story and open people's eyes as to the importance of organ donation.
Come along to our speakers training session, where you will get advice and training on how to maximise the potential of your story. We want to help and support people to share their experiences, and have received extremely positive feedback from those who have attended so far. By sharing your story, you could educate others and encourage people to sign up, and we can help you deliver your story effectively and with confidence.
If you are interested in attending on the 11th June in Richmond, Surrey, please email info[at]lltgl.org.uk. The sessions are completely free, but we have limited places, so please get in touch asap!
We look forward to seeing you there!
