Julian Treasure Demonstrates How to Improve Retaining What We Hear
In this short but attention-grabbing keynote, Julian Treasure uses research that shows that we are losing our ability to effectively listen to others. He informs his audience that we spend 60 percent of our communication time in the mode of listening, but we only retain 25 percent of what we hear. In this scientific presentation, Ron not only gives us tools on how we can better listen to others in a world of noise, impatience, sound bites and recording devices with just five simple exercises, but also uses audio recordings to help us recognize common patterns in the way that we listen to each other. By improving our ability to better listen to those around us, and by teaching this skill to future generations, Julian Treasure believes that we will also improve our quality of life.
