HBA Houston presents

Rescheduled: Conversations Worth Having

Join HBA Houston for an evening of networking and conversation with Jackie Stavros author of “Conversations Worth Having-Using Appreciative Inquiry to Fuel Productive and Meaningful Engagement.” Conversations is the primary way we connect with others especially in workplace and social settings, imagine trying to lead a team, department or work on a project with just one other person without words nor conversations? Conversations is the lifeline to how we get things done in most settings. If we can have conversations that are appreciative and inquiry-based, it will strengthen relationships and promote situations where you and others can thrive and flourish!

Carol Wells, Sr Director, Commercial Training and Development, Genentech, Inc. will open the event with insight about her experience with the HBA.

Registration is required and limited for this engaging event that you will not want to miss. Hors d’oeuvres during the networking hour and a drink ticket is included with registration.
