Left Bank Books welcomes TED talk speaker, UMSL alum, and Friendworking expert Keisha Mabry, who will sign and discuss her new book, Hey Friend: 100 Ways to Connect with 100 People in 100 Days!
In a world plagued by no new friends, counting friends on one hand, transactional networking and where talking via tech is preferred over in-person chats—friendship is more important now than ever. BUT, the art and science of making friends is dying AND Keisha wants to revive it. Hey Friend: 100 Ways to Connect with 100 People in 100 Days is a mission-driven book or better yet—a movement. A movement to get people to stop networking and to start #friendworking. A movement to make the world friendly again or at the very least friendlier than it’s ever been. A movement to change the world one connection at a time with hundreds of people in 100 days in 100 ways.
“The workshop we had with Keisha was one of the most invaluable hours we’ve spent in conversation in quite awhile; Keisha is excellent at what she does, she’s very informative, she’s fun and engaging, and her energy is wonderful! She’s a true inspiration.” —Maryville University
