Houston Branch June Meeting
June 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm CDT
ASCE Houston Branch is excited to host current ASCE President Elect, Professor Jean-Louis Briaud, Ph.D., P.E., D.GE, as this month’s webinar speaker.
Topic: Technical Communications: Humor and Philosophy
When: June 16, 2020 from 12 PM – 1:15 PM CT
Contact [email protected] with any questions.
The presentation will be a collection of events and situations which illustrate communication problems and solutions in the technical world. Examples will abound from landing in North America 48 years ago to studying geotechnical engineering while not speaking English, to the lack of communications between the professors and the practitioners today. Topics will include the proper means of communication, daring to speak in public, solving problems between people, listening, empathizing, the nasty email, your audience, the importance of timing. The goal of the presentation will be to share experiences from which the speaker learned a lot. The lecture will be sprinkled with humor and philosophy and end with ten rules for a successful career.
