Workshop Testimonials:

"I believe that if all engineers practiced the principles taught by Style for Success, it would do our profession a world of good – they would be more valuable to their employers & rewarded through greater remuneration."

Lee Ready, President
Ready Engineering

According to studies by Harvard and Stanford business schools, the ability to converse, network, and build solid relationships with employers, clients and co-workers is identified as the #1 success factor.

For the engineering and geoscience professionals, the ability to communicate and network effectively can boost your profile and engender better business alliances and connections for mutual benefit.

This session will enhance both your personal and professional life by providing you with some simple strategies to quickly build rapport with others, overcome shyness, start small talk and take it to BIG talk, and enter and exit conversations with finesse.

Included in this seminar is a module that will help you gain an understanding of the power of image to build a consistent corporate brand and use your personal image in an effective business manner. It will offer practical tools to gauge your image impact and enable you to appear well dressed in all business and social situations.

There will be plenty of scenario demonstrations to ensure you will gain skills, confidence and feel more comfortable networking both internally and externally, and thereby increase your personal effectiveness.

Lunch features a business dining tutorial so you always make a great impression when dining for business or pleasure.

One day workshop includes:

  • highly interactive skills practice
  • peer group discussions
  • networking opportunities
