How to Have Conversations That Matter

Tues. March 24, 9:30am • The Nueva School, Bay Meadows Campus

Tues. March 24, 7:00pm •  Bowman School

Author and award-winning journalist Celeste Headlee sheds a much-needed light on the lost and essential art of conversation and its true power to bridge gaps. In a time when conversations are often over text message and lack of meaningful communication and dialogue abounds, Headlee argues that improving how we  relate with one another can be beneficial at work, at home and within our communities. She will share the strategies and tools to help us all become better conversationalists – and have conversations that matter.
