Getting the Most Out of a Speech by Al

1. Al enjoys shining the spotlight on local changemakers and is happy to incorporate them into his speeches and presentations.

2. He prefers being part of events that involve local storytellers, artists, musicians, dancers and spoken word poets. Check out his blog post Recipes for an Unlaunch and feel free to adapt for your event.

3. He doesn’t appear on panels or in sessions where the majority of presenters are men.
