Are you still you? # selfie

That was smartphone junkie English for: Are you still yourself? We live in the age of selfism. The first image a toddler perceives of itself is not a reflection. It’s a selfie that their parents take so that others can also “like” their family happiness. In the social media showcase, we seem more attractive than we are. Happier than we feel. The digital doppelganger is beautifully filtered beyond recognition. People of all ages now get rid of their wrinkles with injections because they want to be more like their selfie than their real humanity. Where is this leading us? To this lecture. Better than Botox, we promise.
Core topics: self-esteem, self-image, social media, digital doppelganger, reputation, impression management, incarnation, growing up, ego, appearance versus reality, society.

It’s off. PS: It was never on!

Language is the source of all misunderstandings. The digital makes these more possible: Emails and Whatsapp messages are the source of all misunderstandings – private and professional. Whatsapp is a witness in every third divorce summons. Management emails and CC-tattletales communicate with others to the point of job termination. Social-media-incontinent people post about jobs, relationships, and their thoughts. Is that necessary? (No winky emoji) No. The lecture for everyone, both women and men*, who want to understand each other better and generally digitally communicate more successfully. *or not yet decided.
Core topics: Digital communication, language, style, content, corporate wording, male-female communication, employer-employee communication, customer-colleague communication, communicative failures, bad luck and glitches 2.0.
