How to be that Fabulous Person with Hearing Loss

Gael Hannen is one of North America’s most sought-after speakers on living with hearing loss.  Gael is a writer, public speaker, and advocate who is passionate about hearing loss issues and we are very excited to have her for our March presentation. Here is what Gael has to say about her forthcoming presentation: 


"As a person with lifelong hearing loss, I should know a thing or two about it. One thing I know for sure is just when you think you’ve nailed it, something happens to knock you back to square one. For example, trying to communicate through pandemic masks. But I also know that we can get up, dust ourselves off and move forward again, by being true to a few golden principles. I discuss these in my presentation How to Be That Fabulous Person with Hearing Loss
