June 27th at 5:30 to 8:00 PM – Transformational Communication 

Are you able to effectively communicate your emotions in a business context? Can you keep cool under pressure? Do you recognize emotional reactions & how to best handle them in the workplace? 

Emotional Intelligence is fast becoming one of the most important attributes for success in business.

The Southern Tier Young Professionals are excited to host “Transformational Communication” hosted by acclaimed IBM Learning Consultant Richard Orth.


Deepen your awareness of Emotional Intelligence (EI) – the capacity to be aware of, channel, and express one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. Participants will discover how to transform the way they communicate, both verbally and non-verbally, using two foundational dimensions of communication that dramatically affect EI. These dimensions guide our personal actions which, in turn, shape an organization’s culture, which, in turn, directly affects business performance.

|| WHEN ||

5:30-6:00PM Networking

6:00-8:00PM Workshop and discussion

|| WHERE ||

Binghamton University Downtown Center


Registration is FREE. Please visit to sign up.
