Press Conference Speech in Washington DC
I will be speaking at the 5th Annual, “Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week” in Washington DC on October 15th 2012. I posted the agenda below as there have been people asking to attend.
What an opportunity for victims of workplace bullying to talk to the world about their horrifying and abusive work environments that they had to endure. A place which has historically captured so much pain, and change within the grounds of Washington DC, within the Walls of The National Press Club and the Martin Luther King Library. These places will be sure to echo to the world on October 15, 2012, the suffering of so many lives and the lives of their family members who have been victims of Workplace Bullying.
I will be speaking that day “in spirit” for all the victims of Verizon’s abusive and tolerated hostile workplace environments. I will also be speaking “in spirit” for other victims of workplace bullying throughout the world. For all the people who are trying to make work environments better for their children.
This is the highest honor that I have ever received in my life. To be able to speak at this National Level, at “The National Press Club” and at the “Martin Luther King Library” in Washington DC, along side of Dr. Gary Namie (from the Workplace Bullying Institute) and so many other high profile healthy workplace advocates, victims, politicians and influential members in our society, is beyond a blessing. God has blessed me!
The National Press Club is where news happens in Washington, D.C.
