About the Event
Our profession tends to attract introverts and quieter folks, who prefer to influence with their pens more than their voices. In fast-moving companies, it’s easy to feel like our point of view is getting trampled, disregarded, and forgotten by our non-content colleagues as they try to out-talk each other. In this session, Stacey Gordon shares how to drive meaningful change and influence others without shouting into the maelstrom of loud voices. Stacey draws on her background as a content strategy manager at Google and Facebook, and her time as a consultant, to share strategies for socializing ideas, advocating for the right things, and implementing lasting change—without pushing ourselves too far out of our introvert comfort zones.
This virtual talk will be on Wednesday, August 31 at 6:00 p.m. PST. The talk is free, but registration is required.
