EXECUTIVE COACH, SPEAKER AND AUTHOR ATTENDS PORTLAND COMMUNICATIONS CONFERENCE
One of the joys of being a speaker is that you are often given registration to attend the full conference. This time it was the 2008 Portland Communicator's Conference that was sponsored by NW District of Public Relations Society of America and Oregon Columbia Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators. http://www.ociabc.org
When I arrived, I received a great welcome from the committee. In fact, I am not sure I have ever experienced such a warm welcome from the sponsoring committee.....they did a great job of showing me where I needed to go and escorted me to breakfast. It was a pleasure presenting to them my seminar: "Communications in the Workplace--is it more than Intergenerational Issues?"
For two days I learned -- and learned what I didn't know. There were great presentations on the Internet, Mobile Devices (We don't call them cellphones any more) and found many speakers supporting me in my belief that we must get back to building relationships.
The Committee deserve a huge congratulations on developing a Conference that drew people from eight states and 16 Chapters.
BUSINESS COMMUNICATION TIP:
In order to keep up-to-date it is important for you to keep reading and learning what is happening with the Internet. You don't have to know how to do it --- yet, you do need to know and understand what is happening in the high-tech world that has an impact on your business. There are 258 million mobile device users in the world.
