Jeanine Turner
Author and Professor

As our ability to pay attention in a world of digital distractions vanishes, it is critical for us to understand how to manage the way we are socially present. The pandemic has reinforced that the way we are present and how we choose to be present is an important choice to consider in every moment. Jeanine Turner will offer a framework for navigating social presence at work and at home by understanding four choices available to every communicator. You are invited to join the discussion.
