Workshop: SAY IT LOUD (SF Mime Troupe, Michael)
To get the most out of the workshop:
(1) Dress as you would to give a speech at a rally.
(2) Have a 2-3 minute speech prepared about whatever you like, ideally about something that you are not super passionate about so that you can practice being able to make anything interesting and inspiring to listeners.
For example, if you can give a rousing speech about pocket lint then you know how to construct a persuasive speech about minimum wage, privacy, healthcare, global warming, etc.
