Workshop 2018: Show your worth – bluff without a blush

Show your worth – bluff without a blush

Women tend to be modest when showing their qualities, finding it difficult to claim just who they are and to show their worth, risking being overruled by men who don’t seem to be bothered, and just as easily add that extra bit. But hey, if you don’t show it, how should others know your worth? That’s for you to do!

When we talk bluff, we don’t mean pretending to be who we’re not. We do mean presenting yourself in a way that shows your worth, without hesitation and unnecessary modesty. You will experience to take the stage with confidence and being powerful in words and body-language.

During this short, interactive and energetic workshop, you will experience how to take the stage in a way that suits you best. Trainer Emile Mazerant will use applied improvisation techniques, humor and creativity to help us take that extra step. In the way Emile works, he unlocks the potential of people and facilitates them to apply it with full confidence. To give everyone enough time and space during the workshop, a maximum of 16 women can join, full = full.
