What: WACOSA is proud to be hosting their first “Opening Doors” conference featuring James Emmett, a national leader with expertise in creating outreach efforts for disabled individuals. As a person with a disability himself, James has never let any circumstances stop him from making a huge impact with his work. Some of his accomplishments include: working with many respectable companies to help them develop programs to benefit the disabled community, earning millions of dollars in grants and incentives to be put towards these causes, and completing an article for the Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation. He did this all while undergoing the process of writing his own book.
With over twenty years of experience, James has presented at more than 200 conferences around the world. This particular conference will cover many bases in regards to everyday issues encountered while out in the working world. James will begin by discussing the process of planning a career. This leads into how to further grow and develop communication skills necessary for any job as well as teaching resolution tactics for all sorts of possible employee problems. His presentation will also thoroughly cover the impact the environment has on the business community.
Why: The better question is, why not? The “Opening Doors” conference is especially beneficial to those with Autistic disabilities, but topics are not limited to this demographic specifically. The information presented will be valuable to anyone interested in expanding opportunities for those who struggle to find employment due to their disability. It will be well worth your time and money to spend the day listening to an experienced speaker with impressive credentials. It’s guaranteed you will leave having broadened your knowledge in at least one of the ideas covered.
