      Who is our audience and why should they care? Why act?

      Young adults – a catalyst for success

      Live nation

      The whole public

      People hidden with no voice


      At what point do we need/what publicity – so we can back time and be ready with what they need to know.

      Once we have all the pieces and backed support

      Once our group is confident with who what where and why for our project

      Never too soon teasers with follow-ups and updates

      Treating ideation phases as real news.


      First draft:

      Coming tomorrow


      Take away from our meeting:

      Everyone in person was extremely helpful in getting to know each individuals learning style and personalities. I am already aware that my team members both have very big voices and very important stories to tell. Also getting to know the other leaders and their projects was very inspiring. Having a tangible booklet in closing all of the information we need is extremely helpful as well.
