What's On

"Make sure to offer a firm handshake on every introduction." Remember being told this by a number of business and leadership experts? Imagine how you can do this now in the age of social distancing and hygiene etiquette!

While the handshake has been abandoned, the first 10 seconds of an introduction is STILL the time to make a good first impression. It's easy to forget who we are when we engage – or re-engage – with others. This webinar empowers those who want to elevate their success, confidence and personal brand with the ability to move and speak with ease in social and business situations. This online workshop gives you practical tips and equips you with the necessary commercial skills for effective and enjoyable business networking and relationship-building in the midst of a challenging and often confusing environment of what 'normal' business communication is.

By the end of this online workshop, participants will:
• Have greater confidence, poise and presence when presenting themselves
• Have enhanced skills in online and in-person protocols so as to project the image of both themselves and their firm in a highly positive manner
• Conduct themselves in a professional yet relaxed, natural way in business-social situations
