Faydra Quinn was sponsored by the Communication Studies Department to attend the Women Communicators of Austin’s “Get Smart” Conference, held on October 26, 2018. Speaking about the conference, Faydra said, “Being able to meet and be around other women that share the same vision was an amazing experience for me. The keynote speech given by Dr. Collette Burnette was very inspiring. I loved so many of her quotes. Her ‘Living out loud, Learn backward & Live forward, and the quieter you become, the more you hear’, are just a few that I will start to implement in my life. This conference showed me that nothing is impossible and has reaffirmed my decision to continue my journey of personal development and self-discovery. Thank you so much for this opportunity and I look forward to the attending many more Women Communicators of Austin events.”
Events included the Pecha Kucha student speech contest on October 9, a Brown Bag workshop for faculty and staff on October 10, and Pecha Kucha Austin on October 11.
Our mission as the Department of Communication Studies is to provide students and members of our college community with greater competence in interpersonal, small group, and public speaking settings, and to create awareness about the critical importance of mastering these skills and adapting them to diverse audiences in their personal and professional lives.
