on Wednesday, June 6, 11:30 am
, presented by professional speaker Jessica Pettitt. Jessica brings humor and diversity to help people walk away feeling focused and confident. Get ready to laugh and learn!
What is your favorite part about being a keynote speaker?
I love that I get the honor to do stand up comedy with a point that motivates and inspires people that are doing exhausting, yet important, work to keep doing that work and support one another!
What made you decide to combine comedy, diversity and education to have "conversations that matter"?
Connections with one another can happen all the time, not just at a professional summer camp. We must intentionally engage with one another across different point of views to ever see any change--change that allows ALL voices to be heard. Sometimes it takes the bravery of laughter for a more conservative person to relax and feel welcomed in a space where they typically aren't. Just like it takes the courage of a more "open minded" person to acknowledge that they are biased or... even wrong!
How does your keynote presentation relate to nurses?
I avoided my own burn out by creating an easy to repeat and implement mantra of we are all doing the best we can with what we have some of the time. This saved me and saves others too.
What do you want the audience to take away from your keynote presentation/conversation?
They are good enough--the person that frustrates them is good enough, and together they are good enough. Easier said than done.
What message do you have for attendees who have never head you speak live in person before?
Stay! Laugh! Play! Learn! But really laugh and play and accidentally learn.
