An  exclusive BIGfrontier Big Idea event:
Tuesday, September 10, 2013:  8:30 AM - 10 AM


Not exactly what you'd expect to hear from a communication expert, but these counterintuitive strategies are precisely what we need to interact productively and meaningfully in today's digital world. Our overreliance on quick, cheap, and easy means of "staying connected" is eroding our communication skills. Speed steamrolls thoughtfulness; self-expression trumps restraint. Errors and misunderstandings increase. And our relationships suffer.

With startling insights and a dash of humor, Stop Talking, Start Communicating combines scientific research with real-world strategies to deliver a proven approach to more effective communication. Register early - space is limited to 100 and this event will be full!

BIGfrontier:  A history of innovative leading edge events

BIGfrontier started life in 2000 as a rollicking technology party.  Our first event at Drink nightclub drew 1000 attendees and was sponsored by the likes of IBM and Inforte. Our event archives provide a walk through the wild west days of Chicago’s burgeoning technology scene, 2000-2003. Over the y ears we have hosted panels with some of the MIdwest's most important technology leaders, business reporters and pundits.

Speakers/guests have included Gian Fulgoni, Chairman, ComScore networks, Robert Herbold, former COO of Microsoft, Economist Lester Thurow and Joel Kurtzman, former New York Times Op Ed page editor. Our events have won multiple national accolades including the Tower and League of Professional Communicators award.  BIGFrontier has been cited as the best networking event in Chicago by Chicago Magazine and as one of the premier event organizations in the United States in a Churchill Trust Study.

BIGfrontier now offers event production services featuring everything from speaker sourcing to multi-day seminars with a turnkey suite of marketing and social network promotional tools.  Utilize our award winning services for your organization or company's next event.  15 years experience - from planning to execution.
