We created this powerpoint, copied it to CD's, and sent it out to local businesses and schools to publicize the National Forensic League, public speaking, and speech and debate. Coaches and teachers could adapt this presentation to start a program, induct novices, and publicize a program. Powerpoint includes a slide on the need for funding as well as suggestions for volunteerism. Great for advocating your public speaking program!
You could also use the template with students in a public speaking class, asking them to create presentations to advocate the program themselves. The year we created this powerpoint, students also created separate powerpoints that were aimed at different target audiences (including one for younger students to recruit team membership).
