Next Week

Thursday September 24, 2015, 9am PT / noon ET / 4pm UTC – Mozilla Mountain View + Air Mozilla

Monthly Brantina: “Should I Put it On Yammer?

How do you respond when people at Mozilla ask you this? Do you sigh, roll your eyes, let out a small resigned laugh? Most of us know that many seemingly-benign posts can devolve into a debate nobody expected, necessarily wanted or knows what to do with. Our September Brantina speaker, Deanna Zandt will provide a deeper understanding of how our brains work when we’re engaged in online discussions which can help us communicate better, make better decisions, be more productive, and ultimately engage with more people driving richer, more dynamic outcomes.

Our monthly Speaker Series aka Brantinas are for the public so please invite your colleagues to attend live or via the stream. Views represented by our speakers do not necessarily reflect the views of Mozilla.
