Would you like to feel more confident at business meetings and networking events? Come along on Thursday 26 March to meet your fellow Cambridge HR members and learn the body language secrets from improvised theatre to help you look and feel more confident in those potentially awkward moments.
Networking is one of the most profitable activities you can undertake, particularly in Cambridge where so much business is driven by word-of-mouth. It's also important for those in HR to maintain dignity in meetings and not be railroaded by difficult employees. Yet for many people all that stuff about selling yourself, working a room and maintaining authority in challenging situations can leave us feeling uncomfortable and lacking in self-confidence.
This Cambridge HR Members Event is designed to make you feel more comfortable and confident, and to make business interactions and networking more fun. We'll learn some basic techniques from improvised theatre to help us look and feel more confident, including:
- Reading other people's body language to feel less intimidated
- Changing our own body language to feel more confident
- Having presence and building rapport.
“No-one can make you feel inferior without your permission.”
-- Eleanor Roosevelt.
The event costs £10 per person and is being hosted by Birketts LLP at their offices at 30 Station Road Cambridge CB1 2RE. Registration from 17:30 with the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments before the facilitated session starts at 18:00 and finishes at 19:30. Car parking is available at the station a few minutes’ walk away.
