Arch Month: WIA Workshop - Small Talk and Conversation Skills (CE)
April 21

WIA Workshop - Small Talk, Conversation Skills, and Getting Comfortable with Meeting People

Offered as part of Virginia Architecture Month.

How often do you get into a conversation and you have no idea what to say – or even how to introduce yourself? Meeting people won't end any time soon, so let's dig in together!

Join WIA for an interactive workshop to flex small talk and conversation skills. We'll dig in to starting conversations, carrying them through with intention and developing our personal style while we tap into authentic public speaking confidence. Focusing on audience, interpersonal connection, and impromptu communication, participants will leave with actionable steps to level up communication skills when meeting people, a handout with further learning and readings.

Presented by Jen Brown, founder of The Engaging Educator.

Additional communication workshops will be held on May 19 and June 23. The workshop series is sponsored by Shalom Baranes Associates.

2 LU|Elective. Registration is required and you will be asked to complete a survey when you register. $20 per workshop; $45 for advance registration for all three workshops. All proceeds will go towards a local scholarship fund.
