Voice is Transforming our Online Presence. Why?

Mar 16, 2021

12:30pm – 1:00pm CT

What’s the most basic and primal social behavior? (besides hugging - which we all miss) The human voice is largely absent from major social networks. We’ve captured it through podcasting, and the popularity of that medium has skyrocketed from our basic desire to listen in. But what of conversation? We’re going to explore why using your voice to influence and communicate is the most powerful yet underestimated pleasure in social media. Consider the intimacy of a voice in your ear. Couple that with your response back infused with what you really mean to say not what was convoluted because the tone was not there. Now is the time for direct communication. Real emotions, not emojis. Your voice does so much heavy lifting for you. We’ll explore what nextgen speaking looks like -- sounds like!
