Event Details

In person outreach and engaging the public in a 'one on one' or public speaking fashion can easily feel overwhelming, even for the most extroverted of us. So how can you ease the stress, anxiety, and initial barriers to actually getting people to talk to you? Come learn some tips, tricks, and best practices to getting cold glances to melt and strangers to hear you out.

In this workshop we will be covering some of the basic and most common scenarios and how to best navigate each one. For example, fliering on street corners or in university halls, tabling at events, and speaking to a crowd during a public event or action. Each section will be broken down into an hour each and will incorporate participatory activities. 

Date: Wednesday Jan 31
Time: 6:30-9:30pm
Location: University of Toronto (Exact location TBC)
Accessibility: We will gather in a barrier free space. Subway tokens available to attendees by request. Please write to Laura@Toolsforchange.net if you have specific requirements.

Trainer: Aruna Boodram is a first generation settler/immigrant that has been involved in community organizing for the past 12 years in Toronto and Kingston. She is a licensed paralegal and Community Legal Worker at the South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario. She is also an independent consultant and facilitator that specializes in anti-oppression, consensus and facilitation training and strategic planning sessions for non-profits and grassroots organizations. She is the News Editor for Indigenous Waves Radio Show in Toronto on CIUT 89.5FM. She enjoys reading science fiction, DJing and exploring her foodie lifestyle.
