Pat Seidel–who provides writing and presentation skills training for companies that want to improve their communication and image–told of a recent experience which illustrates that the old style of communication still has value, despite our contemporary fascination with technology. In Pat’s words:
“I recently attended a session on social media. I felt like a bit of an antique in the room. Everyone was blogging, tweeting, texting, and checking Facebook. I was taking notes longhand. Feeling a bit overwhelmed, I asked the woman next to me if she felt the same. She replied yes, stuck out her hand and said, ‘This is still one connection I trust. Hello, my name is Margy.'”
Bravo, Pat. . .you and Margy have given us a wonderful lesson. Face-to-face communication still holds the top spot among our options for interacting and getting messages across.
