Small talk can be tricky and for expats and other international people who travel a lot, it is a great skill to have. First impressions do matter and you can also influence how people perceive you at first encounters. If you want to find out what people think about you after a quick small talk, join our event. We will have two people talking for 3min and then change to the next person until we have all talked to each other for 3min and written down for each person three adjectives that first come to your mind.

Don’t take yourself and the feedback too seriously, this is supposed to be fun and focus on the positive vibes. :) So for example, if someone comes across as a complainer, you can write down the positive aspects instead e.g. he is calm, intelligent and analytical. Try to avoid writing down the negative adjectives, even if you get those vibes, because this event is meant for encouragement. Sometimes people can read between the lines too. :)

19. Protected content break (toilet, drinks)
19.40 Feedback – I will read out loud the adjectives people have used to describe you (raise your hand if you would prefer to get your feedback in private. I’ll send email/ message after the event. Others can write down their adjectives)
20.00 Event ends

Buy your own drinks/ snacks from the cafe before we start at 18.30.

Please bring your own pen and paper! We will hand out a list of questions you can use if you want and a list of the attendees. You can write down the adjectives on each name, but the paper you bring is for your own feedback if you want to write it down.
