Let’s Talk, New York!

(say it like a real New Yorker, and it rhymes!)

Join us to celebrate the joys and power  of Great Talk! Choose from exciting topics to  discuss with 6-8 other lively-minded New Yorkers.  Share your thoughts, experiences, ideas, feelings, and insights.   And enjoy top TED talks (video) on how to be a great conversationalist.

 Among the topics for discussion will be:

            What does LOVE mean to you? (Valentine’s Day is the next week!)

            Do Our Devices Connect Us, Isolate Us, Empower Us, or…?

           Happiness: What’s Working for You?

           Humor: What’s So Funny?  Why?   

           Friendship: How Do You Find and Nurture It?

           Gratitude: To Whom?  For What?  Why?  How? 

Hosted by Elizabeth Cohn, Director of the Center for Health Innovation, Adelphi University, and Ron Gross (aka Socrates), co-chair of the University Seminar on Innovation at Columbia University.
