The footwear industry told us that they wanted advice on communicating effectively, so Two Ten WIFI went to the experts. On August 18th during FN PLATFORM, Remac, Inc., Zappos.com and FN PLATFORM hosted a panel discussion on Communication Strategies (photos of the event can be found here). Panelists included Jim Salzano, CEO of EasySpirit, Andrea Bernholtz, CEO of Titan Industries, Meghan Cleary, Shoe Are You and Co-Founder MeghanSAYS®, Tsering Namgyal, Chinese Laundry, CL by Laundry and Dirty Laundry and Laura Miller, Director of HR at Ariat. The panel was moderated by Belinda Pina of FN PLATFORM.

The panel discussed adapting to the communication styles of others, dealing with difficult situations in the workplace and informal vs. formal communication. We even got some book recommendations (see them on our Pinterest board below).
