Join us for our first-ever Wine Down Wednesday with Ashley Perkins, vice president of Cox Business in Omaha. We’re excited to host this event for our WICT Heartland Chapter members so that we can enjoy some time together. So, grab your favorite beverage and join us from your couch, your porch or wherever you feel comfortable.
We have one simple ask — before our time together, please watch this quick, 12-minute Ted Talk: 10 Ways to Have a Better Conversation. We’ll use this Ted Talk as the topic of our discussion. But, if you don’t have time to watch, don’t worry we want you to join us anyway. There’s no judgment here, just a few minutes to step away from the noise and spend time with friends.
About this Ted Talk: When your job hinges on how well you talk to people, you learn a lot about how to have conversations and that most of us don’t converse very well. Celeste Headlee has worked as a radio host for decades, and she knows the ingredients of a great conversation: honesty, brevity, clarity and a healthy amount of listening. In this insightful talk, she shares 10 useful rules for having better conversations. “Go out, talk to people, listen to people,” she says. “And, most importantly, be prepared to be amazed.”
