Ben stresses the importance of making emotional connections in tech communication. He discussed how using the framework helps people remember key points by creating an emotional connection with the information. Instead of bombarding an audience with excessive information, the focus is on the main points the audience should remember. 

Book recommendation

Ben was drawn back to an oldie but goodie, Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. ¬†
