Dynamic and Authentic Public Speaking to Advance Your Cause
September 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Trainer Linda Carmichaell is a longtime activist who has coached speakers for Our Revolution and MoveOn.org. Her passion is helping people hone their skills to build confidence and effectively speak up about the issues that matter.
Whether you are speaking to inform or inspire, this workshop will explore the most effective way to present a speech to accomplish your aim.
Some of the things we will cover:
>How to connect with your audience, how to hold the audience’s attention.
>How to open strong and close strong.
>How to use pace, rhythm and pausing to good effect.
>How to present your body language so you appear confident and trustworthy.
This workshop is jointly being offered by ACLU-NH and Rights and Democracy, but we encourage all progressive activists to join us. Our plan is to give you the tools to start making a difference immediately – whether canvassing for a democrat, speaking at a local board meeting or testifying in Concord. We plan to build on the foundation we start in September with additional workshops in November 2019 and in early spring 2020.
