Hey 🐠, what are your recommendations of books, articles, or practice tips to improve communication, both verbal and written?
I'm an introverted person, like to keep to myself, focus on work, spend the rest of my time on family, gym etc. I've been told that I need to work on my communication and client relationship building skills. any books I can read? I don't follow pop. culture anymore, no longer actively follow team sports (but sporty myself) as I consider it bread and circus for the masses and don't rly enjoy work drinks... Am I doomed? Personally I am happy and love the work but fear for my career progression.

Bit suprised by the aggressive bid this evening. Is the market setting up for a suprise sell. TD Sequential on a daily basis shouts YES. Last time we did this, had a huge down day. Basically, up for 8-9 straight closes, then 4 closes later, if still higher than these early closes, sell. That's the setup. It worked in June. Will it work now? I know I said bullish; but I think at this level, you have to be short just to see whether the bulls can save it at that HWB long at 3132.00.
If you are working industry, 40 hours a week with a competitive pay and left B4 tax - can you share your new job title? Not sure what is out there that I could apply for.

I want to welcome the 28 new members that were admitted to the bowl today. Five were turned away for not being in senior roles. If I can't tell if you meet the membership criteria, I do look you up on LinkedIn, and I'm glad I do: there were a couple consultants with prior senior executive roles and long careers that I would have missed otherwise.
Anyway, the bowl has now doubled in size. We now have very senior members from global ad agencies, global media agencies, and global brands. Welcome!

I’m a data analyst in the data and analytics department at my company but I don’t use SQL/Python nor do I use data visualization tools. I’ve been taking SQL and Tableau courses on DataCamp but I don’t think I’m retaining much.
Tbh I feel very lost. Should I talk to my manager about this or should I just continue learning on the side? Any advice on how to actually retain the info?
I just find it weird how my title is a data analyst yet I don’t code/use data visualization tools. Help :/
