Legislative Testimony & Town Hall Meetings

Equip your people with the best communication skills and strategies available to influence lawmakers and others who make decisions impacting the future of your organization.
How You Succeed – Every day, lawmakers, regulators and others make decisions that impact the future of individuals and organizations. Therefore, you need the best communication and presentation skills possible to effectively tell your story and think on your feet when testifying before lawmakers – or participating in town hall meetings.
What You Will Learn – You will learn how to greatly increase your Credibility and Likability Factors so you can present clear, compelling information – and deliver it in a way that connects with people at an emotional level. Studies show emotions override data when people make decisions – so while accurate data is important, it is just as important you know how to align the underlying emotions that drive lawmaker and public perceptions. Our leaders are Certified Master Practitioners in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), the study of effective behavior and language cues. We will share powerful strategies to help you listen and align with core filters -- the emotions, values, criteria and beliefs most important to lawmakers and the public.
Extras – A UCLA study reveals that nonverbal communication accounts for right at 90 percent of how people respond to you, and we will also share powerful skills to ensure your nonverbal cues support your messages and overall image. In summary, you will learn proven strategies to align with emotions, frame messages, humanize your organization and influence thinking. This coaching will help you open more doors of opportunity for your organization – and give you the edge you need to be your best!
