Zoom Call

Topic: “COVID 2.0” – What Now? 
Guest Speakers: Bob Fuzy, Principal, MDK Businesses & Ann Thomason, REALTOR, ERA Wilder

Not only has the way we conduct business changed as a result of Covid-19, the way we communicate has also been altered. Face-to-face conversations have now been replaced with communicating through a camera and computer screen. Meetings are substituted with text messages and emails.  Though these technologies have kept us in touch, the human element is sometimes lost. Join us for a discussion on how to refocus our communications to ensure effectiveness in delivering business messages.

If you have questions for our speakers, please email them to Susan McPherson.

Please register beforehand. Once you have registered, you will be emailed information to join the call.
