LINGUISTIC SELF-CONFIDENCE WORKSHOP AT IDEIAhub, LISBON
The workshop lasted 2 hours and explored the participants' concerns in relation to linguistic self-confidence in the business context and how they affect their communication. By the end of the workshop the participants had been able to address their concerns and had been equipped with the necessary tools to communicate more confidently in English for business purposes and influence international teams more effectively.
The participants were asked to declare their confidence levels on a scale from 1 to 10 before and after the workshop. The main objective of the two-hour workshop was to increase the participants' linguistic confidence when speaking English in the business context by 1 point. The results of the workshop, however, surpassed the expectations. After the 2 hours the participants declared on average an increase in confidence by an impressive 2 points.
Apart from the relevant content, the participants praised the passion and energy of the trainer, as well as the relaxed atmosphere and entertaining delivery, declaring a keen interest in taking part in more advanced and comprehensive linguistic self-confidence training.
As a result, the most frequently asked question after the workshop was: “When are you coming back?”!
