Speak Your Truth to Build Power: Communication Training for Leadership and Advocacy

Monday, December 7 — 10-11:30 a.m.

Tuesday, December 8 — 10-11:30 a.m.

The ability to communicate effectively and tell a compelling story is a key leadership skill. 

Great storytelling can highlight and persuade, bring issues and statistics to life, and make the impact of external factors, such as policy decisions, more tangible to audiences.

To build this critical skill among Ohio farmers and food system leaders, the Institute for Conservation Leadership will host a two-session training on communications and storytelling skills.

The training will focus on the elements of effective storytelling, communications strategies, and public speaking with an eye towards issue advocacy. 

Through a hands-on learning process, attendees will build community with other leaders and specific communication skills for their context.
