Workshop Details

“After 10-years, she was an overnight success,” illustrates the point that people rarely reach their victories over night. It takes talent, experience, hard work and leveraging every opportunity and advantage for women to compete for a seat at the table.

Beyond industry knowledge and experience, there are essential skills shared in this Workshop that can help you feel confident introducing yourself at networking events and industry meetings, competing for a promotion or negotiating in the boardroom.

With practice, these skills can represent a meaningful difference in how and when you reach your final destination in your well-planned career. Confidence Project skills are the great equalizer. Age, race, gender, background or financial net worth does not matter. Learn how to use these skills to your advantage in “getting from here to there.”

The 10 Seconds of You© Workshop offers simple, lively and helpful interaction with participantsto practice Introductions with Impact. Each person will craft her specialized 10 Seconds of You© (introducing herself with a hook for people to ask more) and then practice her 10 Seconds and short conversation with others.

Application of Skills Learned

Workshop participants will be able to use their 10 Seconds of You© immediately in both business and social settings. With practice, they will be able to engage more quickly and authentically with others which can boost their confidence.

Skills will include: Creating a strong first impression, introducing yourself with impact, owning your name, creating and practicing your personal 10 Seconds of You©
