If you are here, my friend, we've already had a chat and you have offered to be one of our incredible speakers at our Shift Your Thinking LD Summit. 

We are so excited to have you part of our Summit this October 21, 2017.

You are an expert in your field and we feel you have something incredible to offer the parents who are ready to learn more about empowering themselves -- and their children that learn differently. 

Shift Your Thinking LD Summit is about offering new insights and hope when it comes to learning in a different way.  We focus on the whole child and their family which is why we cover such topics as anxiety, emotional health, nutrition, the gut and second brain and physical health.  

We may have already chatted about a topic that will fit your expertise and the focus of the Summit.  Just take those ideas and write out a catchy title! We have the steps we need completed below.  You can complete them all at once or by the deadline offered.  Whatever works for you :)  

We ask that you share your insights but then bring your information into layman's terms for actionable steps for parents to apply these tips at home with their child. 

We will use what you post on the forms for our website.  So please fill out the form and complete the few steps listed below -- so we can share your message and expertise with our audience. 

Again we are thrilled to have you here!

The Summit is Saturday Oct 21/17 and it will be at the Mississauga Valley Community Centre and Library.  (Here's the google map to the location so you can just put in where you are travelling from.) 

If we have any questions about your presentation please email Sperry at sbilyea@sympatico.ca or Susan at susanotkids@persona.ca

getting ready for the summit:

We want to tell others about YOU!

step 1

image of you, bio and title of your talk by august 10, 2017.

First we need a beautiful image of you. It can be a professional image or a photo you love of you and really represents your talk.  You can send the image to susanotkids@persona.ca

Fill out the speakers form below.  Right now we really need your bio and the title of your talk.   That way we can get started on letting others know about you.  This is a sample image of the social media graphics we send out: 


P.S. Don't worry if the title of your talk changes slightly. We just need a share who you are and the topic you will be covering for the Summit. 

P.S.S. It's a good idea to copy and paste the information you complete in this form to another document you can keep.  For two reasons, first,  it helps you remember what you are focusing on when you plan out your talk. Second, if this form has a 'hiccup' and doesn't work it's nice to just copy and paste your information into the form instead of writing it out all over again.  (it's only happened once...but I don't want you to have to complete it again)

P.S.S. We want to share the Summit Speakers on Social Media. Please list any social media accounts you have so we can tag you and share our Summit with you.
