with Keynote Speaker Strother Gaines
Join us in October for a celebration of empowerment and inspiration! We will be mixing and mingling OUTDOORS under the Reading Public Museum tent over appetizers and a bubbly bar. Bring your business cards, smile and laughter, and join us as we indulge in happiness after another crazy year.
We will be celebrating each other, and laughing a little while discovering what is keeping us back from being the person we really want to be. Keynote Strother Gaines, owner of But I'm a Unicorn Dammit!, will be sharing his personal, and inspirational, story of overcoming his own identity fears, but with flair and fun. We're all familiar with social distancing but have you heard of the concept of self-distancing? Learn how to use tools of actors, gamers, LARPers (Live-action Role-Playing), and drag queens to speed up your personal and professional development. Curious how to level up? Join Strother Gaines for this interactive workshop exploring the concepts of identity, growth, and goal setting through a unique lens.
