How do you define confidence? We seek it, we build it, we lose it, we even give it to others – and yet we find it really hard to define it.
Here are just some of the key questions Heather will answer:
Is the person sitting next to you more confident than you are, how would you know and does it matter anyway?
What behaviours will lead others to believe that you are confident?
When does confidence tip into arrogance?
Men or women – who is more confident?
What are the five different types of confidence and how can you make sure you’ve got access to at least one of these when you need it most? Oh, and bring along your answer to that first question – how do you define confidence? We’ll have some fun exploring just how different our perspectives on this desirable characteristic can actually be. BCSWomen and Scotland Women in Technology would like to thank IBM and JP Morgan who have kindly sponsored this event so that it can be free of charge to attendees. Refreshments will be provided, with opportunity to network before 6pm, and after the formal proceedings close at approximately 7.30pm.
