Want to be taken seriously? Are your finely crafted messages not landing the punch you expected? Or do you just have trouble standing up to be heard? Progressives have the best ideas (duh!), but even after all we’ve learned about how to communicate them, we sometimes find our audiences aren’t absorbing these ideas or messages. Non-verbal communication makes all the difference in determining how your brilliant words are heard. We’ll provide tips and tricks for getting your ideas and expertise across and ensuring your audience remembers the messenger AND the message.

This training is open to everyone.
