Several of my recent posts have revolved around communications regarding FIRST and FTC. The topic has been on my mind, specifically - how we get the word out about the important stuff we're all doing and get more people involved?
Over the holidays many of us are reacquainted with groups we don't regularly interact with, family members, friends of spouses, whatever. Invariably the conversation turns to "what's new" type stuff.
Try out an "elevator pitch" about what you've been doing with FIRST without it taking 5 minutes to explain. It's harder than it sounds. The only goal in such a pitch (I hate the term too) is to get the listener to ask more about it - really just to hook him to want more info.
Let me know how you do - maybe we'll pass the tips along to others.
Have a great Christmas, Hanukkah, or whatever you celebrate!
