Talking about EA at an investors’ summit

Hi all,

A fairly large ven­ture cap­i­tal or­ga­ni­za­tion is hold­ing an in­vestors’ sum­mit near where I live in a cou­ple of months. I have asked for (and re­ceived) per­mis­sion to show up and talk about Effec­tive Altru­ism. Events like these of­ten at­tract peo­ple with a lot more money and in­fluence than I have, and I figured get­ting such peo­ple in­ter­ested in the topic could po­ten­tially do a lot of good.

To be clear, I’m not giv­ing an offi­cial “talk”; I’ve just been in­vited to show up with a hand­ful of other EAs and wan­der around talk­ing to peo­ple (and pos­si­bly hand­ing out liter­a­ture).

I figure I can’t pos­si­bly be the first per­son in the com­mu­nity to try some­thing like this, so I’m look­ing for ad­vice and/​or re­sources on ex­pos­ing peo­ple to Effec­tive Altru­ism in the most effec­tive and least ob­nox­ious way pos­si­ble. Be­ing a com­plete new­bie at this sort of thing, I’m open to any and all ad­vice, up to and in­clud­ing “This will be coun­ter­pro­duc­tive; don’t do it.”

Thanks very much for any help you can provide.

PS: I’m new here, so I apol­o­gize in ad­vance if this is the wrong fo­rum for this sort of thing.
