Global Laser Talk May 2014

Roleplay: Inviting Others to Attend the International Conference

Gillian: Ken I know that you and I have been taking a lot about volunteering and becoming more political active.

Ken: Yeah I know but I'm not really sure what I should do with that.

Gillian: Well I wanted to let you know about a really great opportunity to learn more and deepen you advocacy skills.

Ken: I’m listening.

Gillian: RESULTS is having an amazing conference in DC in June and I think you would really benefit from attending.

Ken: What's going on?

Gillian: Well, we have really great speakers, from Dr. Jim Kim to Tavis Smiley. It’s an amazing advocacy boot camp where you learn how to effectively talk to congress and the media about global poverty. Do you think it is something that you would be interested in?

Ken: Sounds interesting, but not sure I could afford it.

Gillian: You could do some fundraising to get you there, asking friends and family and maybe even do an online fundraising campaign on www.gofundme.com

Ken: I could try that. It does sound like what I’ve been looking for.

Gillian: Great let me give you the details! I am so excited that you are thinking of participating in the RESULTS International Conference!
