    The Power of Silence

    Will Rogers once said, “Never miss a good chance to shut up.” In today’s world of over talking, hyper connectivity and one-upping, the Power of Silence is a lost art - and a lost gift.

    In her talk, The Power of Silence, Alison Freeman explores the importance of meaningful moments, pregnant pauses, introspections and selfless listening, and suggests how to bring them back into the forefront of communication in all aspects of life. Her anecdotes and words of wisdom challenge business communication, interpersonal relationships and self-talk. Her blunt and humorous style puts what are now conventional communication norms in the crosshairs and encourages her audience to take relationships to higher (and deeper) levels…but by being quiet and thoughtful.

    As an audience member once said, “I just want to put what you say and how you make me feel into a bottle and keep it with me, always.” Alison quickly responded, “don’t bottle it up - spray it around and share it with others!”

    Be prepared to laugh and perhaps cry - but most importantly gain insights into higher thinking, feeling and doing when it comes to every relationship in your life - especially with yourself.
