International Spouse Career Lunches 2022

These events are held in an informal setting, but provide a chance for internationals to network, meet with other spouses and to share both professional and personal experiences and interests.

Apart from enjoying a delightful lunch and meeting new acquaintances, these events will also have a career focus on giving you tips on career-related topics and cultural aspects in Denmark. Some of the topics could range:

  • Do you need new ideas on how to enhance your job search?
  • Do you know how to create a CV or resume that stands out to employers?
  • Have you mastered the Danish hygge?

Each month’s theme will be conceptualised based on input from guest speakers, recruiters/head hunters, international spouses and expats.

Children are very welcome to the event; a cosy kid’s area has been set up to occupy them creatively.

POWER PITCHING  - CREATE CONNECTION THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL ELEVATOR PITCH!

Learn how to pitch so you and your ideas are heard and remembered!

Pitching is a powerful communication skill that is important to master in your career and personal life. Pitching can be used under many different circumstances and for different occasions. We typically use pitching for our work, e.g., during a presentation, when we must convince a colleague or business partner about a new idea or a certain way of doing things.

Pitching is a discipline of its own! It is said that an idea is worth nothing without execution. A central part of the execution is to communicate your idea. In other words: it is not enough to have a good idea – you must also be able to sell it to others. You must convince, sell, and communicate clearly in order to get your message across. Pitching is a discipline that enables you to present your idea concisely and convincingly, so that your idea, message, or product – no matter what it is – can reach the stars!

But how do you structure your pitch? What is the recipe for a good pitch? During this workshop, you will learn to convey yourself and your ideas through short, concrete, and catching pitches that ensure others understand and listen to your ideas.

When you have completed this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Write, review, and perform a series of pitches of between 30 seconds and 2 minutes
  • Understand how hooks work, and how they can catch the audience in the first 10 seconds
  • Gain a greater understanding of your appearance regarding the use of voice, body language and other communication tools
  • Work with emotions and curiosity as a tool to present your idea, a project or yourself
  • Learn how to explain to colleagues, employers, or acquaintances what you do and what you can help and offer
  • Understand triggers to help “sell yourself” at meetings, conferences, job interviews or at networking events

During the day

We will go through each of the three topics below and provide the latest research in psychology and communication. This workshop will be highly interactive with discussions, cases, and exercises. 

We will work with the following:

  1. HOOKS: How do you make sure within the first 10 seconds that the listener keeps their attention to you, and maybe even buys into you and your idea?
  2. THE PROBLEM: Why are we in the situation as we are, how do we understand the world and challenges around us, and how do you ensure that the audience see it from your perspective?
  3. THE SOLUTION: How do we find a solution together, why is your solution the right one, and how can it help us to the right results?

MEMORABLE PRESENTATIONS - MAKE AN IMPACT WITH YOUR MESSAGE!

Capture your audience with easy techniques that work!

Are you a researcher or specialist with key knowledge within a specific area of interest? Would you like to learn how to make an impact with your knowledge and become an even better communicator? Then this workshop might be relevant for you since it provides you with hands-on tools that may help you present your ideas, your abilities and your projects in a way that makes people listen and act.

During this interactive session, you will learn how to speak with impact, so you leave the right impression after engaging in conversation. You will discover how to articulate your ideas in a manner that captures even non-specialists, so they understand and find your message interesting. The workshop will also have a focus on verbal and non-verbal communication e.g., body language, key message, voice, attitude etc. 

You will acquire hands-on experience with presenting in a professional setting, while also learning how to successfully manage your own first impression, establish a positive relation with your audience (and network), and communicate clearly, effectively, and confidently to get your message across.

When you’ve completed this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Create a positive first impression (that lasts)
  • Quickly and efficiently establish a strong relationship with one or more people
  • Train your voice and body language – and use them as tools in social interactions
  • Construct and present a clear message that creates an engaging and memorable experience for your listeners, while being easy to understand
  • Learn how you appear in front of others, both in groups and larger assemblies as well as at 1:1 meet-ups
  • Understand that different people have different competencies when it comes to using communication and rhetorical tools
  • Present a topic with confidence in front of smaller groups and large gatherings

The content of this workshop is built on scientifically proven methods, which we put into practice through fun and engaging exercises. You’ll be encouraged to actively participate in discussions and exercises while interacting with both the course instructor and fellow course attendees.
