Event Type(s):OKWIL Event
Description:Join OKWIL from 2:00-4:00pm on March 8 for a seminar on technology in the workplace - Texting, Posting, Emailing, oh my! presented by Kim Strom of Meridian Technology Center.  Face-to-face communication, phone conversations and verbal chats have been replaced with texts, posts, tweets, snaps and emails.

In this information-packed hour, you will discover:
  • tips for ensuring your messages are received as intended
  • latest trends in e-mail and text etiquette
  • guidelines for social media posting
  • preferred communication style of generations
Then plan on sticking around after the session for a short networking event from 4:00-4:30pm.
