Stop Talking, Start Communicating: making your social communications STOP failing!

An Exclusive Chicago presentation 

 

PLAY DUMB. BE BORING.
DON'T SOLVE PROBLEMS.
AND ABOVE ALL, DON'T BE YOURSELF.

 

Not exactly what you'd expect to hear from a communication expert, but these counterintuitive strategies are precisely what we need to interact productively and meaningfully in today's digital world. Our overreliance on quick, cheap, and easy means of "staying connected" is eroding our communication skills. Speed steamrolls thoughtfulness; self-expression trumps restraint. Errors and misunderstandings increase. And our relationships suffer.

With startling insights and a dash of humor, Stop Talking, Start Communicating combines scientific research with real-world strategies to deliver a proven approach to more effective communication.

"Only Geoffrey Tumlin could write a book about a serious problem--our mounting communication deficiencies--and make me laugh and learn all the way through it. Witty, smart, and 100 percent accurate, Stop Talking, Start Communicating points the way to a better conversational future." -- Tina Morris, managing director at Standard & Poor's

"An elegantly analytical, accessible, and enjoyable guide to improving interpersonal communication,Stop Talking, Start Communicating is a key resource for anyone who wants to be a difference-making leader, manager, or team member." -- Eduardo Sanchez, deputy chief medical officer of the American Heart Association

BIGfrontier

BIGfrontier started life in 2000 as a rollicking technology party.  Our first event at Drink nightclub drew 1000 attendees and was sponsored by the likes of IBM and Inforte. Our event archives provide a walk through the wild west days of Chicago’s burgeoning technology scene, 2000-2003. Over the y ears we have hosted panels with some of the MIdwest's most important technology leaders, business reporters and pundits.

Speakers/guests have included Gian Fulgoni, Chairman, ComScore networks, Robert Herbold, former COO of Microsoft, Economist Lester Thurow and Joel Kurtzman, former New York Times Op Ed page editor. Our events have won multiple national accolades including the Tower and League of Professional Communicators award.  BIGFrontier has been cited as the best networking event in Chicago by Chicago Magazine and as one of the premier event organizations in the United States in a 2005 Churchill Trust Study.
