The Building Blocks to Rediscovering your Confidence, and Getting Back out There!

 

The team at Ten2Two North Hants were delighted to be joined this morning by nearly 30 candidates to hear 5 local businesswomen each give a 20 minute presentation, between them covering confidence, interview techniques, staying motivated, hem lines & collars and dressing for your shape.  Candidates left feeling very upbeat, Martine Robins said “Excellent morning in an informal and welcoming environment.  Highly recommend this”.

The next Back to Work Building Blocks Workshop will be in September, so keep an eye out for the invitation if you’d like to come along.

We’d like to pass our thanks on to the speakers who came today – we hope they will join us again for the next event!

“Really inspirational – encouraged me to get going with my career search” – Emma Hill

Making a change in our lives can feel like a big deal.  Even if, rationally, we’ve told ourselves it’s the right thing to do, one of the biggest factors is actually how we feel about it (our mindset).  However, we don’t always trust our feelings which can leave us feeling conflicted and “stuck”.  Stephanie considers how people make decisions and what you can do to use all the information you have (thoughts, feeling and intuition) to create the positive change you want.

Lynn Dowding, PodiumCoaching@btinternet.com
“Excellent.  Loved the discussion on strengths and will find Strength Finder very useful” –  Sam Laney

Lynn covers the positive impact on our lives when we bring our natural resources to the table; to do this we have to know what those resources are and how we take advantage of them. She explores what it means to work with your natural talents and see the benefits of doing just that.

“Great to learn about styles for shoulders” – Julia Cheeseman

The correct neckline, hemline and fabric to suit your body shape are key to good style. Knowing how to shop for your body shape gives a boost of confidence when shopping on your own. Karen helps to identify the key items to purchase when returning to work or going for interviews, can help with a ‘wardrobe weed’, and get you focused on how to pick out those key items that look great, leaving the ones that don’t behind!

Jo Marshall, www.frankieandruby.co.uk
“Great practical advice” – Mira Lanceman

For us this morning, Jo covered the importance of creating the right look underneath your clothes. She demonstrated brilliantly the importance of good support and smooth lines, which go along way to creating a confident look and shape.

As a personal stylist, Jo recognises from time to time we all need a boost, especially when life challenges us to question who we are and where we fit in.  A personal session will give you the confidence to go out and be the person you want to be.
