Ten Completely Made-Up Words That Will Change Your Life

Thursday, April 13, 2023, 1 p.m. Eastern Time, 10 a.m. Pacific Time

It’s spring with all of its color, vibrancy, and new growth. So what better time to focus on creativity and innovation? The April 3CMA webinar with innovator Nick Kittle is designed to help us rethink life and how we show up. 

Part of our challenge is knowing what words to use as communication professionals, but what about when the words never existed? How can completely made-up words reframe what we do and how we do it? This informative and provocative webinar will help us learn new ways to engage with our residents, coworkers, friends, families, and, most importantly, ourselves. Yes, it will be silly—and serious—but most of all, it will be a lot of fun. Kittle, a nationally-renown civic innovator and author of Sustainovation, will use one of his favorite techniques, Sniglets, to help us explore the world through a new lens. So if you’re tired of the same-old words and the same-old meaning, join us for this one-hour event to help you approach life differently!
