Motivating Audiences to Act: Public Speaking Strategies For High Impact Outcomes
As nonprofit professionals we make arguments for support daily. Requesting donations for a new program, inspiring groups to volunteer and encouraging community leaders to adopt a challenge, all require successful arguments. However, to persuade, the audience must be targeted, the message crystal clear, your presentation-style compelling and the post-presentation steps actionable. We’ll discuss best formats and how to identify key audiences. Plus, the often-overlooked post-presentation strategies to identify and engage those with real interest. Join us for a fast-paced webinar, grounded in planning that yields high-impact outcomes. Examples from different sized organizations in different markets assures content is meaningful to all!
