TechWomen Power Breakfast: Kick-ass Confidence for Women
February 10 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am
Kick-ass Confidence for Women
“You just need to be more confident.”
A phrase that every woman (and man) can agree with but few know how to do.
What does confidence look like? How do we “be more confident” in difficult and complex situations? Is it possible to exude confidence even when we’re nervous or uncertain?
The Kick-ass Confidence Workshop answers these questions and dozens more through stories, statistics, practical examples and laughter. Your confidence is your choice and this workshop will show you how to go from knocked down to standing tall in any situation.
Confidence is a combination of how you feel personally about your skills and value and is heavily influenced by how others see and react to you. Whether you are a student interviewing for university or a woman asking for a promotion at work, the goal is to feel that you are in control of your confidence and know how to present yourself effectively personally and professionally.
At the end of this workshop, attendees will:
- Understanding their current confidence level
- Know the three areas they can adjust to increase their confidence in any situation
- The environment: location, preparation & stakes
- Their physical presence: body, deportment & appearance
- Their mental preparations: knowledge, experience/status & history
- For each area, attendees will have specific actions they can take IMMEDIATELY to improve the way they feel and present themselves
While much of the focus for this workshop is around “professionalism”, the same concepts can be applied in any situation – from classroom conversations to university interviews; from job interviews to promotions. This is the workshop for girls and women who are ready to kick ass with confidence.
