How to Talk to Strangers: A Masterclass in Conversations and Communication

Share this:

Do you want to be right or do you want to be effective?

People are open. People are curious. People want to learn. They want to know. Every time I talk with strangers, that’s what I find. Every time I walk away from those conversations, that’s what I feel. Hope. Compassion. Connection. But you wouldn’t know this unless you engage, talk, listen, interact. Show up.

I’m asked so often how to talk about being vegan, how to be a voice for animals. What to say? How to say it? When to respond? How to respond? How to remain calm? How to remain joyful? How to be effective? Today is a 2-hour Masterclass in Communication and Conversation based on recent interactions I’ve had. 

I also share what I think is one of the greatest dangers of our time, and it’s related to communication, so tuck in, pour yourself a cuppa, and get comfy, because we’ve got a lot to cover in today’s episode.
