What do you mean it’s rude to have a firm handshake? Or Cultural Awareness and Effective Communicating Across Cultures
Driving on the right hand side of the road is a given in our culture, but go to Ireland and you’ll find yourself in some sticky situations if you don’t adjust. In any given day, we work with students and families with a wide variety of backgrounds. Participate in an interactive cross cultural exercise to further your understanding of
intercultural communication, what it means, and how to do it effectively.

Effective Public Presentations: Persuasion, Presence, and Not Freaking Out!
Public speaking to a number of different audiences is a key element of our work – and it’s therefore something that can be more intimidating than it needs to be. Dr. Steve Klien, Chair of the Fine and Performing Arts Division at Augustana, will share with us some basic principles, concepts and strategies for making our public speaking both more effective and less stressful.

Networking: It’s often who (not what) you know that gets you what you or what your students need.
How can you make the connections that will be most valuable to you both for your personal professional advancement and for advancing the cause of your students. Learn some tips from an experienced guidance counselor, admission counselor and business leader in a panel and discussion format. Then, you’ll know what you need to know, to know who you need to know.
