    The GLLV Chamber is proud to announce Chamber University presented by Westmoreland County Community College!

    Offered FREE to all members, join us on Tuesday, April 30th for breakfast and coffee from 9:00am - 10:30am at Westmoreland County Community College LATROBE Campus.

    Cathi Gerhard, Adjunct Professor of English and Professional Communication, will speak to our group about Communication.

    Title:
            Start Making Sense: Communication Skills to Get Your Point Across

     

    Description:     Learn how to break down the barriers between information and comprehension.

    American novelist Mark Twain is often quoted as having said:

    “The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”

    Combining passion for a subject with the skills to communicate it effectively among multiple audiences is a complicated and constantly-evolving discipline. The onset of our current “digital age” and the requirements of Industry 4.0 have drastically changed the role of traditional methods. Communication design is now an eclectic discipline composed of rhetoric & composition, art, technology, and sociology. It develops the message and creates new media channels to ensure it reaches the target audience.

    In this short seminar, we will discuss and learn how to quickly and effectively improve the ways we convey information such as:

    • Writing emails and letters to get efficient results

    • Documenting and interpreting data for accurate and persuasive impact

    • Utilizing social media for quantitative and responsive outreach
