OUR MODEL

1. Introduction

State your “why” and share your background

2. Share Your Work

Use multimedia or your voice to tell your story.

3. Call to Action

What should people do after hearing your presentation? How can people get involved?

4. Collective Ideation

An idea wants to be shared. In sharing, it becomes more complex, interesting, and more likely to work for more people.
