Introduction to Speakers Bureau Volunteer Training

March 1, 2015

The Introduction to Speakers Bureau workshop is offered to Donor Alliance’s volunteers, Advocates for Life.

This workshop is facilitated by Brianna Doby with Positive Rhetoric, and is designed for Advocates who desire to work on developing their stories in a safe and supportive environment. Advocates will need to bring their current 5 minute in length speeches. Each Advocate will share a 5 minute version of their story. Then as a group we will discuss the importance of: setting the tone, knowing your audience, evaluating your opportunity, repetition with structure, phrases and key words. The facilitators will spend time with each attendee one on one to specifically address the structure and points of each Advocate’s story. Each Advocate will be provided with constructive feedback, pointers and guidance to improve the effectiveness of their own presentations.
