Imagine your audience knows little about your organization and the issues you care about, but you need to convince them to take action.
• Create an opening sentence that will grab the listener's attention and leave them wanting more information.
• Use simple language so you can say it easily and be understood.
• Make it vivid. Use an example or memorable story.
• Infuse it with your passion.
