We would like to thank the presenters for contributing their talent, time and energy to sharing their gifts with the men of the conference. The feedback from participants was wonderful, and participants often struggled with deciding which workshops to attend!
There was a diverse array of workshops offered that included ways to diversity your business, how to improve your personal and professional awareness and intuition, public speaking skills, creative and unique engagement interventions, as well as ways to expand our knowledge and skill as coaches.
The theme of inclusion was well integrated into each of the workshops. We introduced un-conference sessions into the programming, which allowed participants to create workshops on topics that mattered to them. Participants brainstormed and created 4 workshops that were participant led. What conference leaders discovered is that there is a strong desire and need for community building and connection as coaches.
The un-conference workshops created were around building connection, asking and receiving physical touch, the gay experience, shaping attraction, and the vital role of being an elder in the community. The conference could not have been the experience that it was without the support and willingness of the presenters.
We would like to thank the following individuals for taking initiative to create and facilitate these unconference workshops:
- Alexander Noor
- Patrick Boze
- Joseph Casan
- Gregory Skalney
- Brian Gorman
- Bernie Kettle
A special thanks to the facilities committee for their work coordinating the needs of the conference.Add a comment
For over thirty years I have been an activist for quality care for all individuals living with HIV and an advocate to end the stigma of living with HIV. I believe U=U is one of the most significant advancements in the history of HIV since combination therapy.Add a comment
