Workstorming at Blackwell's High Holborn with Rob Kendall - The Conversation ExpertThursday, September 8th at 18:30A huge portion of our working day is devoted to conversation, whether person to person, over the phone, or via email. Despite this, much of the talking we do can leave us feeling unheard, bogged down in trivial disputes, or as if we are going in circles. In his new book Workstorming, Rob Kendall roots out the typical warning signs that indicate a conversation is about to go wrong, and explains how to change the way you speak and listen to achieve positive outcomes at work.
Blackwell's are excited to be joined by Rob in the shop to celebrate this latest publication, for a talk and Q&A session all about the importance of conversations. Rob has worked with over 70 organisations across 5 continents. He is also a Non-Executive Director of BAFTA and EMMY winning visual effects company Jellyfish Pictures.
Tickets are £3 and can be booked here.
