Dear Friend,

A few weeks ago I delivered a professional development workshop, north of Brisbane: Responding to P0rnography as a Child Safety Concern. Attendees (from schools, churches and the counselling / psychology / youth work fields) were blown away by the enormity of this issue, but at the same time, were encouraged by what they can do in response. Each person had opportunity to reflect on the impact of p0rn on kids and youth, and were pointed in the direction of a range of tools to support them. Everyone developed a blueprint unique for their organisation to move this conversation forward, and whilst  there's still lots for them to do so that this issue is prioritised to improve kids safety, each person left feeling empowered with new skills.

Since this workshop, I've had requests for other locations. I'm investigating the possibility of workshops on the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, as well as visiting rural regions. I'm looking to partner with organisations to host the workshop, and reach out to local communities to invite their networks. If you would like your organisation to benefit from a reduction in ticket price for staff and the opportunity to prioritise this issue in your area, please reach out and have a conversation and download the generic flyer to gauge interest amongst your networks. 

Keep reading below for upcoming conferences I'm speaking at in Sydney and Brisbane, along with a free online summit. It would be great to connect with you via one of these events.

Till next time, stay inspired.
