About the presentation
Effective communication as a fundamental tool to work within society
Abstract: The Animal Cause has been fighting on several fronts to expose the problem and now it’s time to also create solutions to reach all the audiences, making the change easier, so it becomes faster. Now, that society has shown some interest in Animals Rights, Veganism, and the Environment, doors are being opened and bridges are being created with public and private institutions, such as Municipalities, Schools, Restaurants, etc., and we can use their strength for the benefit of the animals. Knowing that Communication is the basis of all relationships, for possible cooperation, we should become masters on this art, using the principals of Effective Communication to guarantee our success. In this presentation, Elisa will explain what effective communication is and how it is a fundamental tool to work within society, demonstrating it with some examples of Aliança Animal’ Programs.
