MENglish® and WOMENglish® Gender Communication from the Bedroom to the Boardroom

All the way from Dallas Texas (yes she is a friend of Debbie Saviano's), Interesting Talks is proud to present Andrea Jones.

This is Andrea's only UK speaking engagement. Full details of her talk will be added shortly.

Do you ever wonder if you and your partner, co-worker, boss, father, mother, son, daughter,  etc. are actually speaking the same language? The bad news is that you're probably not.

Men speak "MENglish®" and women speak, you guessed it — "WOMENglish® ". Innate differences and gender expectations influences our behavior and our communication styles.You may doubt that gender is really that important in defining the way people interact and communicate with each other; however, the distinction between male and female is perhaps the most obvious, visible, and dramatic subdivision in our species. However, in our modern society it is often considered “politically incorrect” to point out these differences.

Men and women are equal, but not the same !!!

Key Takeaways:

• Understand the differences in communication styles between men and women

• Realize what you should ask yourself before you start any conversation with the other gender

• Learn how to avoid the biggest mistakes you can make when talking to a man / a woman The humorous keynote addresses the central factors that drive gender-related communication problems and emphasizes the importance of men and women valuing each other's strengths – from the bedroom to the board room!

Andrea Jones

If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, then Andrea Jones is definitely from Earth, providing a middle-ground perspective to men and women in both their personal and professional relationships with the other gender.

A native of Berlin, Germany, Andrea has more than 15 years of experience as a woman working in leadership positions in mostly male-dominated environments. Andrea’s innovative and effective way of dealing with men led to her success in the male-dominated sports world, where she was the one and only female business manager of a professional men’s basketball team in Europe, Alba Berlin.

Andrea is a certified personal coach and corporate trainer, leading gender communication seminars for large corporations. She is also the Executive Managing Director for the eWomenNetwork North Dallas and NE Tarrant County Chapters.

    This was an enlightening talk and fun too. Angela is a knowledgeable lady and had the room in fits of laughter. The guys who came were very brave to make the comments that they did as there were very outnumbered, however it made for a very entertaining evening. Thank you.

    Andrea is an excellent speaker who reminded us in a humorous way about differences between male and female species and about need to embrace those differences instead of trying to change gender. I really enjoyed her talk. Thanks Andrea and Matt

    Good presentation by Andrea. Plenty to think about communication. Certainly made me think about how miscommunication between men and women lead to misunderstanding. Would like to know more! Good choice of speaker Matt.
