Title: Wake up, Show up, and Speak up: The importance of influencing the political establishment.
Topic: How to amplify your individual voice to advocate for legislative action.
Thank you for joining my breakout session. Here are some key takeaway points from my
1. There is a concerted and coordinated effort to crack the foundations of our Republic:
Family, Faith, Finances and Freedom.
2. Anything contrary to the woke agenda will be attacked, including Election Integrity
3. Not everyone will attend a summit or rally, listen to a conservative podcast, or take the
time to read an educational article.
4. In the absence of fair and balanced media coverage, We the People must be the voice of
truth. You are a person of influence in your immediate circle of friends, family, and
coworkers. If you speak effectively, they will listen to you.
Wake up, Speak up, and Step up = Learn and Know, Communicate, Do.
You don’t need to be an expert but must BE well informed on the topic you are covering and
have sources that you can direct towards for further learning.
Assume your audience is very intelligent but knows nothing about the topic. Explain yourself
and do not use jargon.
Don’t begin where you are, instead begin where they are. Proceed to build a bridge to bring
them to your position, this approach is much more persuasive.
Ask questions and listen. Process what you are hearing and withhold from sharing your
conclusion. Instead think through the questions together and lead your audience through a
journey. If you walk together, they are most likely to arrive at your destination with you.
