Proven prevention strategies are the foundation of state oral health programs (SOHPs) and typically drive the work of state oral health coalitions. To advance these strategies, SOHPs and coalitions must identify new allies and build public will. From brief talks to longer presentations, speaking opportunities to various stakeholders offer a prime opportunity for this kind of engagement. This session will provide: 1) a matrix that helps state oral health leaders choose and organize the content of their talks, and 2) techniques for delivering these talks with maximum impact. All participants will benefit from a role-play exercise in which some participants will give a brief talk and receive constructive feedback from the moderator and peers for improving their speaking skills.
