CLIC: Inter-Communication: Everybody speaks English, right? new [Places] 12:00 - 14:00 CLIC online teaching

In today's globalised world, effective communication in English transcends the boundaries of native and non-native speakers. It's a shared journey, and English-speaking individuals—whether native or proficient—have a pivotal role to play in fostering inclusivity.

Join our workshop to:

  • Engage in an experiment highlighting the challenges of using English as a universal language of communication.
  • Dive into the concept of accent bias.
  • Develop a heightened cultural awareness of the subtle nuances between direct and indirect communication styles, and gain valuable tips and techniques to excel in international settings.

To participate you must have your webcam switched on.

CLIC: Inter-Communication: First impression counts new [Places] 12:00 - 14:00 CLIC online teaching

Did you know that long before we developed languages, humans relied exclusively on non-verbal signals to understand each other? Even today, our unconscious brains are finely tuned to these cues, shaping our first impressions within seconds. Whether you're presenting, interviewing for a job, or working in a team, becoming aware of how you come across can be the key to success.

Join our workshop to:

  • Gain a deep understanding of the fundamentals of non-verbal communication.
  • Explore how non-verbal cues vary across cultures and discuss different preferences.
  • Discover the art of using body language to project confidence, build rapport, and increase your presence-both in physical and virtual interactions.

This is not a webinar. This is an interactive workshop and you will be expected to contribute to the session.

To participate you must have your webcam switched on.
