Communication and Miscommunication

We live in a world of “fake news” and media manipulation. It is commonplace to see stories and messages spun, skewed, and unsupported. But what happens when one is genuinely trying to communicate a message? What can go wrong? The answer is – a lot.

Join IABC Lynchburg on Thursday, May 23 for a discussion that will outline effective written and verbal communication and the barriers that can impede it. Solutions for effective communication will also be suggested.
