Research shows that when an interviewer likes you, two powerful things happen:
1) The qualities you have suddenly become more important to doing the job successfully.
2) The skills you don't have automatically are discounted.

So, given that, how do you create a faster positive connection in an interview? How can you persuade the interviewer that you are a candidate that deserves very serious consideration? That's where TEDx speaker and author, LYNNE FRANKLIN, comes in. She's an amazingly interactive presenter on how to apply engaging communication styles that give you more credibility and increase your connectivity with each interviewer. And this isn't just about the words that you convey but your body language as well. At the same time, Lynne provides a great deal of guidance with regard to reading the interviewer's attitude and facial gestures in order to capitalize quickly on what most readily will resonate and connect with them. Here are some of the topics that she'll be covering during her presentation:
  • The Persuasive Cycle: the steps everyone's brain goes through to say "yes"
  • Confronting your judgments about being persuasive
  • How to read people's body language to read their minds and present information in a way that connects with them
  • How to turn every question you're asked into a persuasive and confident response
Date:  Wednesday, September 30th

4. Census: Count Yourself In

The 2020 Census ends on September 30 and the self-response rate is still below the 2010 figures. Currently, Chicago is at 59.6% and we need to use the last days we have left to ensure everyone is counted.
If you have not already completed the form, you can do so online at
There is so much to gain from an accurate count - not only does the census provide federal funding for social services and infrastructure, it impacts our political representation, and provides data we use in our businesses to determine marketing and business expansion. It takes less than ten minutes and it will make a difference in our city for the next ten years. We appreciate you taking the time to fill out the Census and hope that all residents will take this opportunity to invest in their communities.
