|Share your passion with hometown crowds||
We need volunteers who are able to talk to businesses, civic, educational, professional, social and other groups on these topics in 2015. If you are a member of our Speakers Bureau, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer for these opportunities:
|Help inform the public about government and the courts||
Overviews and supporting materials for all Benchmarks activities are available online. They are grouped into three categories: Constitution and the Bill of Rights; Courts and the Judicial Branch; and Special Topics. Attorneys who become trained in Benchmarks — by watching the webinar or attending a seminar — are eligible to earn CLE credits. Presenters can earn one ethics credit hour for each presentation for up to three presentations in a three-year reporting period.
Speakers Bureau volunteers are encouraged to contact civic groups in their communities that might be interested in these presentations.
|Communicate and connect by talking on someone else's level||
Many of the requests we get for speakers are for topics that are important to everyday lives -- buying and selling property, wills, estates, credit card and consumer fraud -- issues that most people experience. The Speakers Bureau is designed to provide a community service by sharing Florida Bar members' expertise in a variety of areas, while also enriching members' lives and legal practices through community involvement.
Presenting to groups is a good way to make a good first impression. Your passion for law is what they will remember!
|Have them coming back for more||
|Clicking with your audience||
To totally connect with your audience and stand out from other speakers, it's an orator's best practice to create unique, valuable insights that can only come from you.
People love exclusivity. Give your audience something they can’t find anywhere else and they’ll automatically gravitate towards you and spread the word. This is especially true if you’re giving these insights away for free.
