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.
