Clear and Persuasive Communication: Speechwriting, Presentation, Advocacy and Policy Influencing

Lebanon Support is pleased to invite you to its first open workshop as part of its Civil Society Incubator on Clear and Persuasive communication, with Thomas Hart.

The workshop will address how to prepare, structure, and style writing, in order to achieve effective and memorable communication. Specifically, the workshop will focus on speechwriting and presentation writing, as well as how to incorporate clear and persuasive communication in advocacy and influence policy
