Workshop Body Language at Female Faculty Network Twente

The Female Faculty Network Twente is inviting her members for the workshop:

Body Language – upgrading your non-verbal presentation

by Ariëlle Brouwer

on Tuesday 15 February 2011, from 13.00 till 17.00 hrs.

in building Drienerburght

“Why do I have the feeling I’m not being taken seriously?” “How come they don’t listen to me?” “Why is that promotion not given to me?” In presenting and profiling yourself in the academic atmosphere, you might find that focussing on the content of the work is not always enough to make a good impression… As a scientist, you are generally focused on the content of your work. Women, in general, also have a tendency to focus on the content. Yet, when talking about your work in a presentation, or everyday with your colleagues, your body might speak a different language! It can (unconsciously) send out signs that run down the quality of your story. This workshop creates awareness and gives you clues regarding your personal body language, and will invite you to add some new skills to your repertoire. You will also learn what postures and positions are most useful (and impressive) during giving a speech at conferences or other public speaking events. You will practice by making short and powerful statements in order to influence people and to make a good impression.

Upgrade your presentation!

In the recent survey you asked for more opportunities to get to know each other better. You asked, we listened and therefore, instead of having a guest speaker this month, Ariëlle Brouwer has kindly offered to be the facilitator for the evening together with Jacinta Noonan. They have a number of fun activities up their sleeves designed to get us up and moving about, meeting people in innovative and creative ways. The aim of the evening is to get to know each other at a deeper level and to engage in conversations that we are truly passionate about.

In the ambience of a beautiful restaurant, while enjoying a delicious meal accompanied by just the right wine, you will enjoy an enriching evening among friends; some you know and some who are just waiting to make your acquaintance.

Date: Wednesday 19 May
Time: 19:00 Registration and Welcome Drink

You can enlarge your social and professional network, get more knowledge about friendship in different cultures and more awareness about your own personal and cultural preferences.

“It’s an elegant way of getting to know new people.”

“Very nice evening with very nice people.”

“For me it was a relief to have real good conversations that matter, not superficial.”

Connecting people
As communication trainer I regularly work with expats on cultural awareness and ‘how to communicate with the Dutch?’ It’s a great job to give people more insight in the background of miscommunication and to help them to feel more at home. This dinner event was inspired by the many expats who found it so hard to become friends with Dutch people.
By facilitating the exchange of experiences, I intend to help connecting people.

I’m looking forward to meet you on Monday, April 26th!
Your trainer/host, Ariëlle Brouwer
