Third Thursday at Anne O Art

Every leader needs an occasional pause in the drive for results...

to make room for the creativity that lets you connect with your team/audience on an emotional level.
You communicate powerfully when you share your stories with ease.

Connecting words with visual images takes practice, and is a key to bringing your vision and lessons learned to life.  

Join us for our March
Echelon Third Thursday™ gathering 
Thursday, March 15, 6-7:30PM

This is a Speak Like You Mean It event about connecting and engaging -- with a diverse audience on topics that aren't squarely in the business realm. Appreciating and discussing others' perspectives just might spark your next success.  

Support speakers who've already signed up:
YOU are also welcome to give a 5 to 7-min. talk, no slides necessary.
You can even sign up to speak when you arrive, no RSVP required. 

Let EchelonCommunicate and Anne O Art give you that rare chance
to clear your mind and let ideas flow.  

Recharge how you communicate so you make things happen. All Are Welcome.
Please share this invitation, bring a colleague/friend.

Third Thursday at Anne O Art

What’s Your Tapestry?

Life lived deeply blurs the lines between work, play, passion, and people. Business is more than just business as insights from the garden suddenly make sense in the boardroom, and a child’s story offers more lessons than a stack of books on leadership.

Anne O Art and EchelonCommunicate invite you to Third Thursday, a spoken word event presented in conjunction with the current gallery show, Threads of Life. How do the threads of your world weave together to form a tapestry that is stronger, richer, and better for its complexity? If you’d like to speak, bring a short piece—an essay, poem, story, etc.—and be prepared to talk for about ten minutes. It doesn’t have to be original, but your words must be from your heart.

Third Thursday spoken word events are open to all and feature guest speakers who get the ball rolling. Both listeners and speakers are welcome, and it’s a great opportunity to hear business leaders share in a relaxed, candid atmosphere. Wine and cheese served. For a speaking slot please contact event host Melissa Gordon at melissa@echeloncommunicate.com.

When February 15 6:00–7:30 pm | March 15 6:00–7:30 pm

Where 264 Buckhead Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30305 in The Shops Buckhead.

Third Thursday is a Speak Like You Mean It™ event, part of Echelon’s commitment to creating opportunities for audiences and speakers to connect.

Speak Like You Mean It

Speak Like You Mean It

In conjunction with Anne O Art’s gallery show, Majesty of Trees, this event showcases the extraordinary life forms that surround, shelter and sustain us, and that too many of us take for granted. Join us for an evening of spoken word from people for whom trees hold a special place in their lives.

featured speakers: 

Daniel McInnis

Daniel leads a US Forest Services initiative called Keeping Forest As Forest. As a child, Daniel spent a lot of time in the woods of South Carolina. Today he is working to save our forests, which are behind so much that we take for granted, including fresh water.

Amy Balog

Trees help us find a way back to ourselves if we stand with them in stillness, a life lesson that has carried Amy since she was a girl. Amy will share how the power of standing with trees has impacted and shaped her life’s purpose, to help people face uncertainty by leading from their Center.

YOUR STORIES

Spoken word events are open! If you have a story to share on the show theme (about 7 min.), either put your name in the hat when you arrive or contact Melissa Gordon at melissa@echeloncommunicate.com.

SPONSORS

Melissa Gordon is CEO of EchelonCommunicate, award-winning producer of branding films, messaging maestro, master interviewer, and creator of Speak Like You Mean It, Echelon’s proven leadership communication training program.
