Book Club — The Architecture of Language

What is it about?

language / messaging / data verbalisation,

This strategic session will create a safe space to discuss the books on our #AMAbookclub list (submitted by you). Explore and discuss the books we are reading and those we are avoiding due to systemic socialisation practices.

How can we take action from the pages to change our behaviours? How does data verbalisation follow the language in our messaging?

The books we discuss will follow the theme of the day and challenge our biased thinking.

View more information on Inclusivity and Audiences Day 2019 and book your place.

What will I gain?

— A different perspective on communications literacy around messaging

— Access to a co-curated #AMAbookclub list to share widely across their own networks and ecosystems

— An insight into sharing information via Data Verbalization from the pioneer of this method

Who is it for?

This is a strategic session for those wishing to explore reading materials, language, communications and data verbalisation.
