  1. What is your proposal?
    To deliver a talk on Effective Communication - Community & Stakeholders and expecting an interactive session.

Be specific about what you want to accomplish, how this helps the project and
the attendees. Review the CFP call (https://flocktofedora.org/#cfp) for details
on what we are looking for.
Communication is the key ingredient of the projects around us and one of the success parameter. Effective communication has positive effect on virtually almost everything that we intend to accomplish. At the same time, over or under communication also have some adverse effect on people or project.
In my talk, I will speak about how we can communicate(verbal and non-verbal) in community and with the stakeholders to make it more specific aiming what we want to achieve through communication. What are the factors those make difference in communication and what could be the consequences of miscommunication. How as a speaker or listener/receiver, someone can act positively. Community communication often based on non-verbal(irc, mailing list, Bugs) and audience can learn how to make make these kind of communication effective. I will also talk on how apart from the passing the message while communicating with people, effective communication often piggybacked by trust, emotion, personal touch that makes it easier to realize the goal.
