All our workshops aim to equip female students of all socio-economic backgrounds with entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial skills for career development.
The workshops are game-based and are run via Girls in Charge in conjunction with societies at your university. Below is a list of all the workshops we offer, focusing on various soft and hard skills required to be the CEO: confidence, leadership, communication and idea evaluation being some of the topics covered.
All our workshops are free, so keep an eye out on our social media and here for the dates of our next workshops!
WORKSHOPS SO YOU CAN
BE YOUR BEST SELF
CREATIVITY & BUSINESS
In these uncertain times, businesses must be creative to stay afloat, and those who do it well can even thrive. In this workshop you will learn how to generate and work on your ideas in a methodical yet creative manner and spend some time breaking rules and setting new ones. Many people believe humanities subjects are not useful, this workshop will hopefully break that myth.
STARTING A SIDE HUSTLE
The idea of your own business being your sole source of income can be daunting and one that requires some risk assessment. So, many of us turn to having a side hustle first. This workshop will allow you to explore current opportunities and understand the basics of building your own business on the side.
ENHANCING YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS
Communication is necessary for all aspects of life, especially in the increasingly digitalised workplace. This workshop aims to guide you through the steps required for effective communication: whether it be with your team or your boss; in person or virtually.
NETWORKING ONLINE & OFFLINE
One main issue brought up during our Roundtable event of July 2020 was that of networking. Job opportunities are NOT EQUAL and knowing the right people or having a great mentor can really help. And if you're taking the entrepreneurship route, then your network is going to be vital. This workshop goes over practical skills for networking: how to seek people out, the art of conversation, and continuing the relationship.
CONFIDENCE - BODY LANGUAGE
What you say matters, but also the way you say it. Body language is an art and this workshop will help you understand how to align your words with your body’s movements, honing both your presentation skills as well as your negotiation skills. Knowing how to read others' body language will also give you an extra edge in all sorts of situations.
Scheduled for near Easter time, we all know the academic year can be a bit of a drain before final exams. This workshop will help you create a resilient mindset, meet friendly people, and get you ready to conquer the world (or at least your exams and internship/job)!
PITCHING & PUBLIC SPEAKING
Public speaking will be part of your life regardless of your career path, be it presenting your work to your department or launching your company's new product. This workshop help you conquer your fear of public speaking and will take you through the essentials of body language, voice, and storytelling.
CONFIDENCE - PERSONAL BRANDING
Knowing who you are is very important, be it in your personal life or the business world. As an entrepreneur, you will be the centre of your business, and the ‘personality’ of a company will be derived from your personal branding. As a job seeker, you need to stand out from the crowd. This session will help you explore your strengths and weaknesses, and create your own personal brand through a series of fun games and activities.
