In addition to honoring our ambassadors, advocates and partners, we will be joined by dynamic speaker, Brianna Doby, founder and owner of Positive Rhetoric, LLC. Brianna will share her journey of hope and healing following the loss of her mother in 2008, and will inspire and motivate us as we continue our own journey as ambassadors in the community.

Experienced Ambassador Training

The Experienced Ambassador Training, facilitated by Brianna Doby, teaches Ambassadors new tools to gain greater community commitment to donation and transplantation. Specifically, Ambassadors learn how to:

  • Lead the general public to trust in the idea of donation and transplantation.
  • Lead the general public to trust in the outcome of donation and transplantation.
  • Lead the general public to trust in the people behind the outcome (LifeSource/Donate Life).

We will also discuss some “tricks of the trade”, like 4-7-8 breathing, narrative re-framing, listening skills, and strengthening our empathy for others.
