Put Down Your Phone and Talk to People

August 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


PUT DOWN YOUR PHONE AND TALK TO PEOPLE: How to seamlessly bring back connection In your daily life

The digital world has brought us many great things. We have so many ways of being connected now. Yet somehow, this huge web of digital interaction can work to push us further apart. People are finding that their involvement with social media is making them feel more isolated, not less. In a world where people gather ‘likes’ on Facebook rather than chatting to the people around them; where we walk along the street with our heads bent over their phones, rather than smiling and saying hello to the people we pass; it is easy to forget the simple joy of real human connection.

Drawing from her new book; Flirtology: Stop Swiping, Start Talking and Find Love, Jean Smith, social and cultural anthropologist, will challenge your reliance on interacting digitally. Making the most of every real, human, face-to-face interaction is a skill. And it’s a skill that will enhance every aspect of your life, from the personal to the professional. Let’s get connected, for real.
