Webinar Series: Opposition Messaging – Nov. 19, 2014 at 1pm ET

Most nonprofit groups that stand for something typically find there are groups on the other side of the fence.  When faced with opposition, you must be strategic in your response, remain in control of the conversation and stay on message. During this webinar, participants will learn how to anticipate and respond to opposition more effectively. In addition, they will learn how to use Spitfire’s opposition message box tool to map out their opposition’s arguments and plan a strategic response.

Our popular monthly Webinar Series features the same expert trainers that lead our in-person trainings all over the world. Interested, but unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict? No problem. All of our webinars are recorded and participants receive copies of the training handouts afterwards.

Spitfire offers discounted packages to organizations that send multiple staff members to a webinar or to participants who wish to attend multiple webinars throughout the year. Contact Joline Collins at (202) 448-0233 or Joline@spitfirestrategies.com for more information. Or click here to register. Let us help you take your efforts to the next level!
