CIPEX presents: Developing and Presenting Effective Workshops, Apr. 5

DES MOINES – CIPEX is proud to announce that the phenomenal Lady Elsa will be presenting a special Intensive on Sunday April 5th.

**Developing and Presenting Effective Workshops
for the Kink Community**

Education is one of the most valuable and fun ways to give back to the kink community, and almost everyone has something they can share, from the local to the national level. In this full-day intensive, you’ll learn the basics of developing effective kink-related workshops and classes for large and small audiences and delivering them with confidence. Some of the topics covered will include:

• Determining what you have to offer
• Developing an outline
• Structuring a class
• Choosing an appropriate instructional method
• Understanding and teaching to multiple learning styles
• Encouraging audience participation
• Keeping audiences awake and interested
• Creating effective handouts

Students will have the opportunity to develop and receive peer critique on several presentation ideas, and to practice teaching and public speaking techniques in a supportive, constructive environment. In order to participate in this intensive you must register by sending an email to Richard at We have a limit of 20 people for this specialized intensive so this event will sell-out quickly. Please also RSVP here on Fetlife so everyone is aware of how much room is left.

There is a cost of $20.00 per person for this intensive in order to cover the cost of supplies and the venue. Remember this intensive is limited to 20 people.

Lady Elsa is a femme leatherdyke with a passion for kink education. She is proud to have served as half of the very first International Power Exchange couple in 2012, and has travelled all over the country talking and teaching about non-traditional power exchange and BDSM spirituality. Her current BDSM community crusade is “training the trainers,” teaching kinky subject experts to be more effective presenters in their local and regional communities. She is the leader and co-founder of Andromeda, a BDSM social and educational group for kinky women, and has held many leadership positions in NLA Indianapolis. Favorite things include clothespin play, butches in business attire, and endorphins.

Lady Elsa will also be presenting her class: **When Straight Met Queer
Creating a Truly All-Inclusive BDSM Community** at the CIPEX Munch the day before, Saturday, April 4th. Everyone is welcome to attend and this event is absolutely always FREE to everyone.
