Mailbag: I and E Club : Wed June 12th: "Talk"
It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It Learn More June 12 at Evansville Area Inventors & Entrepreneurs Club Have you ever had a conversation go completely sideways and the meaning of your words become lost? Alternately, have you ever been offended by someone else’s well-meaning advice or critique? Effective communication can be a challenge even between native speakers of the same language because those speakers often have contradictory ideas of what is the most appropriate style for expressing goals, concerns and criticisms. At the June 12 meeting of the Evansville Area Inventors & Entrepreneurs Club, Ms. Sable Schwab will introduce communication styles and how they differ based on cultural and personal backgrounds. Attendees will learn to identify their own unique communication style and explore ways in which they can improve communication with others. Ms. Schwab is a Cross-Cultural Communication Specialist, holds Master of Arts degrees in Linguistic Anthropology and Applied Linguistics, and has worked in diverse communications environments, including Spain and China. She will be speaking at 6:30 p.m. at Creekside Place, 102 Maple St., Evansville. All are welcome to attend and network. Sponsoring this month’s refreshments is Ms. Jennifer Bennett, a residential real estate agent with Realty Executives International, located in Madison. Ms. Bennett may be reached at (608) 215-5225 or on Facebook by searching jenniferbennettrealty.
