standing tall feedback

Thank you for addressing our staff at Oberon Middle School on Monday, August 11th, 2014.

Here are a few points to consider to try to increase engagement for all participants.
  • Don't "require" agreement that the morals of our current society are in decline.  It makes it harder to fully dedicate attention to your message/program.
  • Redo the booklet to include at least one woman.  I found it hard to relate to the male cowboys depicted in the booklet.
  • Address Matthew Shepard.  Intolerance is an issue a lot of people connect to the cowboy culture in Wyoming.
  • Why assume your participants don't already have their own well developed code of ethics?   
  • Keep religion out of it, or include examples from many religions.  As a non-Christian, I felt a bit alienated.  
You have a good message and with some intentional changes you could reach a wider audience.
