Evidence suggests that we form a first impression within 7 seconds of meeting someone. How you interact with people in the crucial first few minutes could dictate how they think of you in the future, and guide the rest of their interactions with you. It pays to make an excellent first impression and it could even help you supercharge your career!

In this 45 minute interactive workshop KPS’s Charles Beddow, Head of Training and Development, and Larry Leung, Head of Career and Recruitment, will guide you through a few key steps to WOW anyone you meet in your professional life, whether that be through networking or interviewing, face-to-face or over webcam. In partnership with Wanted, Charles and Larry will cover:

  • How to Introduce yourself in various professional situations
  • When to take charge of a situation and how
  • How to build a connection over webcam
  • Your elevator pitch

In this workshop you will have the chance to practice your elevator pitch with instant feedback from the team at KPS. Take this opportunity to learn how to make a lasting first impression, ensure that your impression sticks, and is reinforced in the future!

This workshop will take place on Zoom and is open to anyone looking for strategies to improve their soft skills. Don’t forget to keep your camera and microphone switched on during the session to get the most out of your participation.
