“A HUGE thankyou @TimNoonan your presentation last night was wonderful, feedback from attendees has been true soul food!!” – Nancy Georges Social Media Women Convener
Authentically, engagingly and consistently express your true self and identity in social media.
On the evening of Tuesday, 13 November 2012, Voice philosopher and technologist Tim Noonan will take us on an enchanting journey of self-discovery into both our virtual and our physical voices.
How can we best express our essential self (our voice) online through social media channels while also endeavoring to keep true to who we are and how we present face-to-face?
What are some of the implications of voice, gender and identity, particularly when we connect and communicate online, predominantly through text-based channels?
The physical human voice has the natural capacity to convey a blend of our thoughts and our feelings. Tim will explore and demonstrate some strategies for introducing more ‘heart’ to our social media communications.
Tim will conclude by mentioning some emerging technologies which have the capacity to create deeper and more authentic connections.
Guys also welcome!
