Getting Heard

Communication is simply the imparting or exchanging of information or news. But how we communicate in social and professional settings has changed dramatically in recent years. With the rise of new mediums and constant competition to get people’s attention, effective communication is more important than ever. Our panel will talk about different ways they deliver a message, an idea or even a hallway thought. Hear about what works, what doesn’t and what we can do better.
