Meet & Speak is finally coming to Bristol, this is an initiative that was set up by a couple of our members Fran and Karen and is especially to support Women wanting to know how to present and be heard. We know it can be daunting and their first meetup is called Crafting your elevator pitch and acknowledging your fear. This has been in the planning for a while and we’re very excited by it, it will also run is both Bristol and Bath.
- In this session we will be crafting our own 30-60 second elevator pitch (so called because it can be delivered between two floors in a lift), a succinct summary of our background and experience.
- We use a simple three-part structure to craft our introductions and practice saying it within the group.
- Then, working in pairs, we dig a bit deeper to find out more about each other. Four key questions will help us to craft a more interesting and extensive bio (useful when applying for a speaking slot).
- Feel the Fear & Do It Anyway.
- After coffee and cake we will discuss how to acknowledge and channel our anxiety about public speaking.
- This is the first of six monthly meetings which run on the first Wednesday of every month.
Our Careers fair is showing some great interest and we will be announcing in a variety of posts and other social media the great companies who are coming aboard. We will also announce the workshops, which will all be free and part of the fun, the website is www.tech3shed.org and to sign up on eventbrite here .Continue reading “Meet & Speak anyone?”
Phew – that was a busy week and there were 300 people who turned up for the Desklodge house launch party so big thanks to all who came and partied with us.
Thankfully this week we are mostly back to Normal .. except that we are now onto the next big thing .. our Tech Careers Fair!! Yes, we know that Bristol is lacking in this area so have put our heads together with HBB and Desklodge and decided to throw one in March (sorry, we are still in party mode!). We want it to be inclusive and open to everyone who has a slight interest in getting into the industry, with workshops, trainers and forward thinking companies who are open to speaking to everyone and all capabilities. The Website is live and we are currently speaking to our possible sponsors and our current WTHub members have a stand with their membership as they are already known to be great!
