WTS PD-Committee Hosts “What Do You Say?” with Joanne Linowes

November 27, 2017 05:24 PM

By Amanda Finelli, TranSystems

Fifteen professionals gathered at TranSystems after work hours on August 22nd to hear from Joanne Linowes on how to differentiate themselves and make their words count.  Joanne Linowes, a nationally recognized presentation coach and communications advisor, has long been a WTS speaker.  She has presented “How to Negotiate” at past WTS professional development sessions as well as been a guest speaker at interactive luncheons.  In this seminar titled “What Do You Say?” participants were first prompted, “How are you?”  to demonstrate how easy it is to fall into standard questions and responses. Joanne then guided participants using five key techniques on how to respond to standard questions with dynamic and unique answers.  Participants took full advantage of the intimate setting, frequently asking questions and volunteering examples throughout the discussion.  Most importantly for the professionals in the room, Joanne demonstrated how each of her tips could be tailored specifically to networking, interviews, or speaking to coworkers.

Thank you to Joanne Linowes and TranSystems for hosting the workshop, as well as to the following WTS-Boston Professional Development Committee members who contributed to the success of the event: Christine Breen, Wynn Design and Development, Jackie Carver, HDR, Stephanie Bridges, Kleinfelder, Carolann McCarron, MBTA, and Allene Rieger, Amanda Finelli and Kim Bean, all of TranSystems.
