TEDxBocaRatonSalon: Theme: Communication Overload
Thursday, September 12th, 2019: 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Boca Raton Innovation Campus - Boca Raton

Thanks to digital devices, the world we live in is more connected than ever before. Every day is a constant juggling of googling, posting, tweeting, snapping, texting and/or emailing. In fact, the average adult spends more than 11-hours a day consuming media. Children and teens spend more than 7-hours a day looking at their screens; and every year that stat is rising. Research shows too much screen time can have lasting consequences on the brain.

With so much information at our fingertips 24/7, have we inadvertently created a society that is overworked and overwhelmed? Are we living in a generation that is addicted to communication? What are the implications and where do we go from here?

Join our group of curated experts September 12 at the Boca Raton Innovation Campus as they speak about Communication Overload, observations and implications.

Enter Impact Mapping, an approach that reveals the hidden assumptions that keep you from reaching your goal. This technique helps when you're looking for innovative solutions to tough business problems because you'll bring in strategic thinking skills as you identify the ones most likely to reach your goal. Even better, you'll know upfront how to measure the impact of those solutions, so you won't invest more than you need.

This workshop is hands-on, so get ready to learn while you're working!
