Joel Blackwell, The Grass Roots Guy, has worked in 47 states and Washington DC helping ordinary people get what they want from government. The author of five books and numerous videos, he pioneered research into how elected officials make decisions, what they respond to and how they want to be influenced. In this lecture he will explain how ordinary people — no matter what party, what issue or what cause — can shape public policy through legislative advocacy. He will reveal the secrets of crafting a message to politicians that will engage them and get positive action; how to use staff to reach decision makers; easy steps to build personal relationships that help you achieve your goals, and seven steps for a successful in person meeting with an elected official.
