Our brains are wired for connection. A daily dose of social interaction is important for our mental and physical health. Yet many of us feel more disconnected than ever. In this Meetup Live event, we’re talking about the devastating effects of loneliness and how to build relationships essential for our wellbeing.
Join Simone Heng, author of Let’s Talk About Loneliness, for a discussion on the importance of human connection in everyday life. Combining scholarly research and first-hand experience, Simone will share practical steps to help you nurture authentic relationships both in and out of the office. You will gain the knowledge to navigate different communication styles successfully.
