Writing and speaking effectively are two very important skills to have when it comes to issues—like breed-specific legislation—that can seriously impact your daily life. We all need to speak out and make others aware of our feelings about BSL.
We can’t all be good at public communication. Some of us have trouble writing. Many more of us get a queasy feeling just thinking about speaking in public.
As the general art of communication is somewhat outside the boundaries of this website, I have endeavored here to provide some resources for people who wish to brush up on their public communication skills. I haven’t written any of the material at these links, but I think you may find them useful.
