Join us to make new friends and learn social skills at the VoiceStory: Conversation and Connection sessions at the Library! Registration required.

VoiceStory is hosting their popular “Conversations and Connection Sessions” social events at the Coquitlam Public Library!


What are these social events about?
The VoiceStory social events are about putting away cell phones and taking a moment to be with yourself and other community members, then having time to practice how to have a conversation.


Are you new to the community and want to meet people?
Looking for a safe space to practice speaking?
Tired of having video calls to connect with other people?


Then this is where you want to be!


If you have thoughts and feelings of being disconnected, uncertain of what to say, what to talk about, not wanting to go alone, “this is just another networking event…” or a multitude of other reasons… please understand that we have kept all of this in mind in the creation of these social events for you.


What happens during the event?
We start each event by introducing a few key concepts on the Art of Conversation and how to become a more effective communicator.


Next, we invite you to participate in our safe, friendly, empowered space, where we will facilitate rounds of 1-on-1 conversation by providing a topic/question for each round of conversation.

Will I get to meet new people?
Yes! We take care of pairing everyone up with someone new every round, so you have ample opportunity to meet new people from your community and practice the art of conversation.

 


When and where is this event held?


These social events happen twice a month at the Coquitlam Library City Center Branch from 6:30 pm- 8:00pm on the following dates:

Mon Oct 2 - Key Concept: Three qualities that will improve your listening skills.
Thurs Oct 19 - Key Concept: Three skills that will help you become an effective communicator.
