AWC-SB presents Books for Breakfast, an informal summer discussion group of books that will help us become Better Communicators. Two events are taking place on July 14 and August 11 in downtown Santa Barbara. Meetings are open to AWC-SB members & non-members. No-host, you buy your own beverage/breakfast. No need to RSVP, just show up.
Whether it’s Russian trolls planting fake narratives, conspiracy theorists colluding against a perceived enemy or well-meaning citizens sharing misleading memes, the current deluge of information has made it all too easy to disseminate fiction and falsehoods that can topple businesses, spread pandemics and even undermine democracy. Join veteran journalist, educator and truth-talker Starshine Roshell for a look at how we got here, why it matters and the small-but-powerful things you can do to help.
“Words matter.” That tagline could be a mantra for AWC-SB members. It also appears on Nonviolent Communication, the August selection for AWCSB’s popular Books for Breakfast event. This classic book by Marshall Rosenberg promises to help readers “find common ground with anyone, anywhere, at any time, both personally and professionally.” Nothing could be more timely—or more relevant to professional communicators!
Change is never easy, but the coronavirus pandemic has forced all of us to adapt to profound disruptions in our personal and professional lives. On Wednesday, June 10, 5:30PM, Join friends and colleagues for a Zoom session featuring local leaders who will offer insight into how local organizations are responding to the uncertainty created by COVID19. We’ll also have break out rooms so you can share experiences and insights into how you are managing change in your professional and personal life.
