The first impression you give is crucial
Your personal image tells the world who you are and where you are going. How you dress, groom and communicate ultimately determines your success in today’s turbulent business and personal environment.
Most people will judge you within the first seconds of meeting you and their opinion will most likely never change. Are you someone to approach or to avoid? Are you friend or foe? Do you have status and authority? Are you trustworthy, competent, likeable, confident?
Giving a bad first impression can make you lose the confidence of prospective clients, and even cost you business. The first impressions you give a client will set the tone for your future business relationship and show that you are professional and prepared.
Whilst you cannot stop people from making snap decisions on the image you project, you can learn how to make those decisions work in your favour.
Come and join us for this fun and interactive workshop; learn how to make a killer first impression and understand how people perceive each other.

Do something different for lunch and join us at The Impactory.
In collaboration with ESADE Alumni we will run our first Action Lab, with a series of 3 workshop on the theme of “How to make your ideas happen”.
This third workshop will be about leadership.
Based on the book Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky this first session will be about ideas, space and organisation.
This event will be facilitated by Paco BRISENO, Impactory member, ESADE Alumni & HR Consultant at EIB.
Action Labs aim at becoming a local forum for conversations, connections and actions, aiming at inspiring people to make a change for the better. In addition to the inspiration, the aim of action labs is to accompany those people through their concrete steps towards improving their lives, their communities and the world.
An Action Lab is a local initiative to form a local community
of like-minded, engaged and committed people wanting to
contribute to a just, prosperous and sustainable civilization,
one conversation, one action and one community at a time.
Light lunch & soft drinks will be provided by ESADE Alumni.
