CONSULTING FOR INSTITUTIONS + PUBLIC SECTOR
Consulting: Narrative Craft
As an applied Cognitive linguist, my command of both Spanish and English allows me to fine-tune the subtlety of words in order to validate a message. Words bring about feelings, create literal physical sensations in our body, and shift and shape our understanding of a topic. Words matter and empower humans. Metaphors move perspectives and alter mind-sets. A single preposition in English can shift an entire disposition and the placement of an adjective in Spanish will create figurative or literal meanings.
SPEAKING FOR INSTITUTIONS + PUBLIC SECTOR
Speaking: Sharing the Wisdom
Drawing on my extensive experience as a language instructor, applied linguist and researcher, my talks can show you what Cognitive Linguistics can do for you, and how it can inform and enhance your professional development and that of your teams: Metaphor Theory and its benefits for holistic, on-target communication; Cognitive Grammar and communicative language instruction; Linguistic Typology and its effect on bilingual narratives that use both Spanish and English.
