Free Workshop. Get 10/10 Career Confident, Without More Qualifications Online workshop

4th August 2020 @ 19:30

You don’t need more qualifications and experience to get more confidence in your career.

Forget endless cv-rewrites, psychometric tests and new portrait photos.

Forget traditional career advice and fruitless emails to recruitment agencies.

If you feel like you’ve tried everything to change your job, build a new career, launch a new freelance business or switch to something else then this is the workshop to try a different approach. If you’re feeling short of time, overwhelmed or just plain stuck, then this is the workshop to get some fresh thinking. If you love your job but feel like you should be getting more recognition, feel more valued, speak up more or build yourself a profile, this may be where to start.

At this workshop I will draw on 25+ years of profile-building, interviews and transformational coaching to offer a confidence-building strategy that starts with discovering who you really are and what you’d really like to achieve. A simple, 3-step process to give you clarity, consistency and confidence in showing up in your career as your authentic self.

Have you ever felt that you don’t get the recognition and profile you deserve? Have you wondered what you could do if you had the courage to make a change or do something differently? To speak up more? To present more effectively?

This workshop will point you towards the things you need to do for yourself to start the journey towards a more visible and confident you.

Getting more Career Confident is entirely possible. And you don’t need too much more than a shift in the way you think.

This unforgettable workshop could just be the start of your journey to an inspired, confident and authentic you.

You will also receive a bonus for attending this workshop - a free 30 minute coaching session at a time of your choosing.

WHO AM I AND WHY AM I DETERMINED TO SERVE YOU POWERFULLY?

I’m an award-winning PR and events veteran, who spent decades helping companies and their leaders to raise their profile. My career involved working with everyone from CEOs and Board Members to politicians and celebrities.

But as an “extrovert trapped in an introvert’s body” I also had to overcome many challenges to make a successful career – including hundreds of media interviews, public presentations, panel appearances, published articles and chairing important meetings.

I know what it’s like to push through fears, blocks and uncertainties as well as honing personal tips and tricks to effective communication and personal presentation.

I’ve been a certified Coach and Mentor for 6 years as well (ICF ACC Associate Coach) so I can help you develop a powerful mindset in addition to the hard communication skills and knowledge to accelerate your own personal belief, confidence and profile.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The workshop will be interactive and intimate.

Please bring a positive mindset and an open mind!

SPOTLIGHT SINGAPORE is the weekly MICEboard Stream TV live broadcast from and via the destination in Asia.

Starting on August 5th, every Wednesday at 05:00 pm, "Spotlight Singapore" will bring the latest news, information and inspiring reports to the computers, laptops, pads and smartphones of the event planners as a LIVE broadcast.

Es wurde kein Alt-Text für dieses Bild angegeben.

"Spotlight Singapore" is a new MICEboard Stream TV format that provides event professionals with first-hand information about the popular MICE destination in Asia. Each broadcast will feature daily news and information from the destination, providing event planners and event managers with orientation and help for future event and incentive planning in Singapore.

"Even though Singapore is currently not yet fully available for event planning, this is set to change again and we would like to use the regular live streaming to show what incentive, congress and event opportunities the destination has to offer. And of course our office in Frankfurt is open and available for enquiries at any time - even beyond 2021," says Karin Thönes, Senior Manager, Central & Southern Europe at Singapore Tourism Board in Frankfurt am Main.

"Spotlight Singapore" is dedicated to one topic in each programme and shows corresponding exciting and inspiring reports and film clips. Viewers can act and participate live and interactively, such as asking questions, giving feedback or commenting on topic surveys. This makes "Spotlight Singapore" an interactive virtual format with lots of information and interesting facts about Singapore.

Best of all, "Spotlight Singapore" can be viewed easily by anyone and completely free of charge via social media. It is not a virtual event where participants have to apply for registrations and passwords to be allowed to attend! MICEboard Stream TV broadcasts "Spotlight Singapore" interactively and LIVE via facebook.com/MICEboard and in the three Facebook groups: "MICEboard Community", "MICE Branche" and "MICEboard". Viewers can interact and participate. "Spotlight Singapore" also runs on Instagram (IGTV), YouTube and in all MICE relevant communities in the social media.

Save the date: from 05 August 2020 at 05:00 pm on facebook.com/MICEboard. Don't miss it!
