9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
If you would like to get more people to go vegan on the spot or agree to take Challenge 22, do not miss this training! In this workshop, activists will learn advanced communication skills, be able to practice these skills, and receive feedback. After the workshop, you will be able to adapt to different personality types (a.k.a. social styles), build rapport and gain trust quickly, structure outreach conversations for maximum impact, ask the most effective types of questions, handle objections to veganism like a pro, and, ultimately, get more people to commit to going vegan or trying Challenge 22!
AVO provides activists with a professional communication skill set to increase success rates in one-on-one vegan outreach conversations. Adapted from corporate sales trainings, this workshop is intended for activists who engage in street outreach, VR Outreach, and conversations with friends, co-workers, and family members. Former Corporate Sales Director Alex Bez has spent the last 10 years training and coaching hundreds of salespeople.
Here are some reviews from past participants:
“This workshop was completely transformational for me as a vegan outreacher! The skills taught and practiced are not only applicable to vegan outreach but to all areas of communication in our lives. There was a great mix of lecture and interactive activities. The content was so professionally delivered with high standards and great humour. It was truly worth every second of my time!!” —C.S.
“I do a lot of outreach, and the techniques I learned this weekend will help immensely — whether you’re a newbie or think you’re a pro, Alex will help hone your skills and the animals will thank you.” —R.M.
“The material was presented in a fun and interesting way using tips from Alex’s own vegan outreach experience as well as invaluable tools from his success in the private sales sector. I strongly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to learn how to coach (not push) people to willingly accept to try living a vegan lifestyle for themselves and see how great it feels to live in alignment with their core values and beliefs. Thank you!” —A.N.
Please note that this workshop is not an introduction to veganism. Participants should have a firm grasp on general vegan knowledge (ethics, nutrition, environmental impact, etc.), and have some experience speaking with others about veganism.
