The OpEd Project: Write to Change the World Public Seminar

Date: Saturday, October 26, 2013

Time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Location: Special Functions Room

. Simmons Institute for Leadership and Change. 617-521-2480

This highly interactive day-long seminar will challenge you to think more carefully and more expansively about your knowledge and experience, and why it matters. We will explore the source of credibility; the patterns and elements of powerful evidence-based argument; the difference between being "right" and being effective; how to preach beyond the choir; and how think bigger—so that we can have greater influence and value in the world. You will emerge with a powerful argument for an idea or cause you believe in, and a network of high-level mentors. This seminar is about empowering you to find your voice and make a case for the ideas and causes you believe in—whether in print, online, on TV, before your board of directors, to potential funders or investors, or on the steps of congress. And it is about the collective difference we can all make by doing so.
