Why Give Live Talks?
Are you debating between using the DVD's or Live talks for your next Alpha course? Here are some questions to consider as you decide what's best for your course. Courses run with DVD and courses with live talks both have proven to be highly effective when following the Alpha recipe.
For those of you who have decided to do your Alpha talks live, we've created Giving Live Talks as a resource to help you contextualize the talks to your audience without losing the core content of the Alpha course. Within this site you'll find a talk outline for each week of the Alpha course, color-coded in the appropriate places to personalize, add your own stories and supplemental quotes. We've also gathered supplemental resources - stories, illustrations, quotes, etc. from practitioners around the country that you can use in your Alpha talks.
Have resources you'd like to share with other Alpha practitioners? Submit your ideas and we'll continue developing and adding more resources to share with fellow Alpha speakers around the country.
Here are examples of what others have done to illustrate their talks:
