Creative Mornings Charleston talks empathy, birthdays, and how to crack the client code

We love Creative Mornings Charleston (CMCHS) — we wouldn’t go to the breakfast lecture series every month if we didn’t see some value in speakers sharing their lives and work with the Charleston creative community. This morning Bret Lott, College of Charleston professor and prolific author — 14 books, y’all — spoke on the topic of empathy. 

Empathy is a timely topic for Charleston. For months we’ve been speaking about, writing about, and talking about how we can come together as a community after the tragedy of the Emanuel Nine. In the Q&A session following Lott’s talk a woman asked, “How do we use empathy?” She meant in the real world, not in a novel. Lott said, “You’ve gotta get out there and interact.”
