About this Experience

This training is perfect for sales teams or anyone who has to make a killer first impression! In this honest and candid workshop, your office team will gain a comprehensive understanding of how they are publicly perceived and what they communicate that they are unaware of. Drawing on her wealth of experience performing for diverse audiences, Minna will help participants learn information about themselves that 1) they didn’t know and 2) knew but didn’t realize was perceived.

Yvellise Vergara, Employee Experience Specialist

It turned out exactly how I hoped. It was interactive, people learned some things, and they were able to move around the room a little bit, explore and share.

Nadia Eran, People Manager

It was great to see people get involved, especially those that are a little bit more quiet sometimes.
