Wow!  What a fantastic evening was had by all in the company of Ten2Two and Paul Ryan last night.

Paul shared some fascinating insights as to why confidence can falter at the most important times, such as an important interview or a big presentation. He then suggested ways to overcome these blips – in the most entertaining way.

There was lots of laughter, demonstrations and interactive learning – and the end result was that over 40 Ten2Two members left the event walking just that little bit taller!

Paul talked through using positive body language, breathing to be calm, guaranteeing the best first impression and avoiding the ‘wet fish handshake’!  After the presentation the excited group stayed to network with each other and practice some of the techniques.

This is just one of the Free events Ten2Two runs for its members to help develop their professional skills.  Paul has recently written a book which includes much of the information covered at the event – see details here.

Here’s what some of our members said:

  • I thought it was brilliant! Information wasn’t overwhelming – common sense ideas, but ideas I wouldn’t have considered in the anxiety of preparing for an interview.
  • I had such a good time! Paul was amazing! He made me feel relaxed and I loved participating in all the activities.
  • An excellent, very informative and absolutely hilarious talk by Paul Ryan. The time networking was also well spent and enjoyable.
  • Light-hearted but a helpful and positive workshop – energizing.
