Who is Audrey?

Media Blitz


Do you remember the days before Facebook and Twitter? The days before we heard people, especially Gen Y and a few Gen Xers, tell all. Do we need to hear about their drunken weekend adventures or hunt for a new job? How about one I just heard-details of a messy divorce. I guess my opinion is influenced by my Boomer status. And some Boomers are also guilty of letting it all hang out!

Peggy Klaus (New York Times Sunday August 19, 2012) suggested guidelines for O.S.D. (Obsessive Sharing Disorder):

  • Who's listening to me-boss, client, a colleague or friend?

  • Why am I sharing this? What is the point?

  • In this situation, would less be better?

  • Have I left emotional baggage outside the door?

  • Does what I am sharing benefit my career or quality of work relationships?

What People are saying about Audrey

Audrey Nelson is a funny and engaging speaker.  She has a way of explaining communications phenomena that is humorous and insightful.  Her assessment of communications and our failure to give communications the priority that it deserves is very compelling.  I especially love that she is willing to call out the differences in the ways women and men communicate as well as Gen X and Y behaviors.   She is interesting and motivating!

You Don’t Say – Navigating Nonverbal Communication Between the Sexes


You Don't Say is the first book to explore the misunderstandings that often arise between the sexes due to nonverbal communication — and to show readers how to say what they mean and get what they want. More than words, it's nonverbal cues that have the power to improve — or impair — our interactions with the opposite sex at home and in the workplace.
