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 !!!
• 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!
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.

Interesting Talks London was set up in 2011 by Matt Kendall.
At each event we have an invited speaker to come and talk about a topic their choice. The topics include hypnosis, NLP, business, persuasion, negotiation skills, self development and even magic.
The events are always in Central London and after the talk there is chance to chat and network with all the attendees in a pub. If you are interested in business and psychology and also enjoy meeting like minded people, then this group is for you.
Please take some time to look through the past events and also the group reviews.
All the events tend to sell out, so join today and book up.
Here are some reasons why you might not attend;
1) You don't want to come on your own.
Over 90% of the people who attend Interesting Talks come on their own and are looking to meet new people. This is as much a place to meet people as it is to hear great talks.
I will ensure that from as soon as you arrive you will feel welcome. I set people topics to actually talk about before the speaker comes on too. Let me break the awkward silence for you!
2) You don't want the hard sell for products and/or services.
I hate hard sell events. If an event is free, it will probably end up costing you something!
At Interesting Talks, the majority of the speakers have a book, product or service of some kind in relation to the subject they are speaking about. At the end of their talk they may give you a bit of information about whatever this is, however this is no hard sell of any kind.
So don't worry, if you don't want to further your relationship with the speakers, there is no pressure to do so.
3) You are a single girl and not sure if you should come on your own.
I have worked hard to make Interesting Talks a very safe environment for women to attend. Probably 60%+ of those attend are women. Please see the feedback in the group reviews and individual events to see what they have to say.
We have so many great talks lined up for you. So go ahead and get booking.
