In his talk, Schultze will share how people can rediscover peace and joy through re-learning how to use the remarkable gift of human communication to listen, love, and laugh together even in the midst of cultural and ideological conflicts.

Schultze is a communication professor, writer, speaker, mentor, and master teacher who believes virtuous communication can overcome many personal and social problems. The problem today, he said, is people assume new technologies, like smart phones, will improve relationships when, in fact, no technologies are better than the people who use them. Schultze has written hundreds of articles and numerous books such as An Essential Guide to Interpersonal Communication: Building Great Relationships with Faith, Skill, and Virtue in the Age of Social Media and Habits of the High-Tech Heart: Living Virtuously in the Information Age. He is the founder and CEO of Edenridge Press LLC, a boutique print and eBook communications company.
