Dyscover’s aphasia ambassadors had an informal training session on manning information stands in their Ambassador Group Meeting. Barry McIllroy shared tips and advice with the other ambassadors from his experience of talking to the public on a Dyscover information stand, with tips on how to initiate conversations (greet people with a smile and ask about their day!), and how to talk to the public (be natural, be yourself!). Caroline and Barry talked through the different questions ambassadors might be asked and how to use Dyscover’s leaflets to signpost people to the relevant information.
