DescriptionHave you ever attended a presentation that had extremely busy and complex slides? Have you been in a conversation where you couldn't figure what the other person was trying to say? We are always communicating. However, we might not realize that when we communicate, we do not make ourselves simple enough for other to understand what we are trying to say. Instead, we tend to be overconfident and think that we are clear while in fact we are not. This is called the Curse of Knowledge, and it means that once we know something, we find it hard to imagine what it was like not to know it. Our knowledge makes it extremely difficult to think about problems from the perspective of the listeners. Keep it Simple is a short program that promotes simplicity in communication and teaches the attendees how to beat the Curse of Knowledge through simple, yet very effective, communication techniques. This is a part of our Brown Bag Lecture Series. A light lunch will be provided.
