Change Media Conference Presentations
We have presented our empowerment programs at dozens of national and international conferences. We love sharing the stories and films and our audiences feel invigorated and create a buzz of excitement throughout the conference.
Find an overview of our past presentations below. Recent events include; the Australian Secondary Principals Association 2009; Australasian Correctional Education Association 2009; National Indigenous Justice Forum 2009; Regional Arts Australia 2008 and ANZA Tech Summit USA 2007.
We tailor our multimedia presentations to really get the crowd buzzing: From a 30min snapshot of digital media empowerment in action to a 90-120 min hands-on interactive session, where you can experience the power of your own storytelling or a full panel discussion on making education, innovation and cultural development ’sexy’…
If you want motivational speakers at your next event, we can send you a full proposal and costing; please contact us here.
