H2H Communication: “Human to Human"
Re-examine how we communicate and use the power of our humanity to form a connection.
More detailed information
Communication, in the end, is one human speaking and listening to another human; whether this is done on a massive scale across digital channels or in a small room on-site. As the post-pandemic world rebuilds itself and shapes a new path forward, we need to re-examine how we communicate and use the power of our humanity to form a connection. Our human ability to be the signal amidst the noise of our current media landscape of pseudo- and hyper-connected social media.
Today we need to clearly signal our seriousness about diversity, inclusion and belonging to an ever-wider group of people. Visual communication is the key to speaking to us all; universally understood content that is highly effective and fits our new, digital context in our hybrid, remote world.
Lessons from Mythology
As our world becomes ever more complicated and our way of life more fragile, we need the skills of the ancient Storyteller and the tools of the Epic and metaphor to deliver us the information we need to survive as a tribe, and to inspire, to align and to remind us of who we are. In this strange, post-pandemic moment in our histories, it’s important to understand that we are deep in an unfolding Epic of our own.
Creating a Conversation
Good communication is iterative; there is messaging and then there is the equal but opposite reaction from the audience. Whether it’s a talk at a bar with an old friend or a keynote speech, building in listening channels keep your audience engaged and involved in the topic.
