Tips to Promote Your Conversation

  • Create your own guest list whether a public or private conversation and draft a plan for outreach (email, text, phone call, etc.).
  • Display a Sign-Up Sheet at your office, business and/or hosting location. Make sure to check the sheet daily and register new participants online – this is so important to regulate numbers for your conversation and space!

  • Promote the event on your website, in printed publications and through email communication.
  • Post flyers on community boards and/or at your hosting location.
