CLARE Mann is a Sydney based communications expert and author. Her latest book titled Communicate begins with this dedication to animals: “To all sentient beings on this earth who so often are taken advantage of by humans. I commit to playing my part in creating a more compassionate world by helping people communicate and become more conscious and connected, regardless of how many legs they have.” Well known in the fi eld of human resources and organisational psychology, Mann is offering her expertise to those who care about animals.
Her aim is to help people communicate on behalf of animals without getting swept up in the emotion and passion that can derail discussions on justice for animals.
Indifference to animal suffering is red rag to a bull for people who know the depths of misery and cruelty infl icted on animals.
This is particularly the case with the industrialised cruelty of factory farming, which the vast number of people remain unaware of or choose not to look into.
Frustration and the sense of injustice can stand in the way of communicating properly. In her book, Mann offers skills to become a calm communicator through turning anger or annoyance into positive action, good communication and useful skills across most of life’s situations.
Calmly communicating on behalf of animals is an effective way to improve their lives and reduce human exploitation of animals.
