Two Women: No Silence For Bad Behavior/Will Live Meetings Come Back‪?‬ FlyingTalkers By Geoffrey Arend

Will Live Meetings & Trade Shows Come Back?

The quick answer is, of course they will.

Right now while you hear this story, COVID-19 vaccines continue to arrive in doses by the millions almost everywhere on earth. At the same time eager cargo events are reaching out entreating us to join a webinar or attend a trade show convention or a regional meeting. The voices, like crickets in summer, will only continue to rise and fall on the wind with greater urgency as populations reach herd immunity, and life thankfully drifts back to normal. Anette Palm, a Director at Worldwide Convention Specialists (WCS) based in Krichenbach, Germany to the rescue.

No Silence For Bad Behavior

So you are a woman today in a professional business situation, or out for a walk and an aggressive unwanted someone decides to hit on you.

What will you do?

Say hello to Priyanka Ann Saini.

“Yes, there have been overtures that have not been appreciated and initially, I did not know how to deal with them as we are taught not to make a big deal of these things and there is no rule book that advises about such behavior.

“However, my way has always been to call out the culprits, confront them head on and condemn this behavior.

“I have done so with the support of male colleagues and have not encountered many who condone such behavior.

“I believe the only way out is to speak your truth, tell your story and call out misogynistic people when you see them."
