Changing minds, swaying votes, and shaping policy can come down to good communication skills. Civil Talk teaches community members how to improve their communications to make a difference on issues they care about—including how to disagree and have civil political conversations; how words, messengers, and advocacy style matter; and how to communicate with elected officials.

Whether you are interested in making an impact through policy, advocacy or candidacy – in your community, workplace or family – messaging matters. Who is your audience and how can you influence their opinions and votes? This panel discussion explores good and bad messaging, the importance of choosing influential messengers, and the two styles of advocacy, while providing real world examples to teach you how to improve your messaging and achieve better outcomes.

Moderated by Andrea Himoff, Executive Director, Action Utah with Panelists:

• Maura Carabello, President & Owner, The Exoro Group

• Reed Galen, Political Consultant; Owner, Summit Strategic Communications

• Natalie Gochnour, Director, The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute

• Troy Williams, Executive Director, Equality Utah
