How to Talk to a Human

9:30 AM - 11:00 AM (EDT), Tuesday, October 24, 2023 ・ Independence Ballroom
In this innovative and timely talk, Abumrad explores the art of conversa-tion. For the last year, he’s been deep diving into the art of interview-ing. Not just how journalists in his industry do it, but how do therapists do it? Salespeople? Hostage negotiators? Social workers? What are the techniques we can all steal and use in our own lives when having diffi-cult conversations with fellow humans? He’ll share insights, play clips and even lead the audience through a few games.
