Reclaiming the Lost Art of Logic in Language on Wed., January 23

Join us on Wednesday, January 23 for a networking and professional development luncheon.

The war against ambiguity and nebulosity in our written communication is not won by correctly placed commas and dutifully agreed subject and verbs. It starts with logic – an adept alignment of audience with message, purpose, and medium.

Michael Deas, Director of Communications and Public Relations for Volkert, Inc., will discuss reclaiming the lost art of logic in language and use real-life examples to show where logical thinking helps make the communication process easier.

See you for lunch on Wednesday, January 23, at Maggiano’s Little Italy, 3106 West End Ave, Nashville, TN 37203.

The Original Tin Roof opened near Nashville’s famed Music Row to give musicians a place to play and a place to hang when they weren’t on stage. The tasty food, fun, eclectic environment, community of regulars and friendly crew quickly established the Roof as the place to be for musicians and non-musicians alike. Over the years, the Tin Roof stages have hosted the famous, the should have been famous, and everyone in between.
