Our Speakersfor Pittsburgh Web Design Day 2016

How to Talk to Humans

Developers are trained to communicate with technology. When talking to a computer, your code nets an immediate response. Simple. Straight forward. Talking to people? Not always the case. Why? Because people require empathy and a little bit of storytelling. In an industry filled with brilliant minds and great ideas, not enough of the best know how to tell their compelling story. At the end of this talk, you'll learn what effective communication really looks like. Bottom line: you'll be a lot closer to being able to confidently talk to humans.
