The weekend read

Pour yourself another cup of coffee and settle in. It's Friday, and time to share all the steaming goodness from my Twitterstream full of great ideas and insights. These are the best reads, items and data I shared there this week, served up for you, right here, right now:
Pour yourself some jobs: The University of Pittsburgh is looking for a senior news representative (with social media and more)....the Rockefeller University seeks an executive director, communications and public affairs...the Chemical Heritage Foundation wants a communications coordinator...New York City's department of health and mental hygiene needs a deputy press secretary.

And I've got two new workshops to consider for your own development: 
  • A November 27 day-long workshop on public speaking and presenting for introverts, with both content and format designed to focus directly on what introverts need and their special advantages as speakers. Join us yourself, or recommend this to a colleague or one of your experts.
  • A December 7 lunch-and-learn for communicators who want to make the case for a training program for your experts. Part brainstorm, part briefing, this will help you develop the data, examples and encouragement you need, whether you want to convince fellow communicators, the powers that be or the experts you want to train. Two hours of insights, plus lunch, a great network of fellow communicators and a followup email so you don't even need to take notes.
Both workshops offer significant discounts and limited seating, so don't delay in booking your space.

I'm glad you have a regular seat at this diner on Fridays. Thanks for coming in...and TGIF.
