Description

Be You. It's Awesome talk series presents:

The Power of Being Vulnerable: How honest conversation can lead to something new


Language is a beautiful thing and yet we spend our time talking about the weather, instead of sharing what we are thinking or how we are feeling.

Opening up to strangers is an alien concept for most of us. Even sharing with close friends and family can be tough and feel very uncomfortable.

But, imagine a world where you felt OK to openly share with others, where you have the confidence to stop the small talk, take off the ‘mask’ you wear and be truly you in your conversations.

Communicating openly (sharing our real opinions and our real feelings) has the power to deliver real impact on ourselves and others. It opens the door to knowing people on an honest and deeper level. And what’s more, it can really change things.

Join this workshop lead by David Fisher as he shares his experience as a speaking coach, and walks you through the benefits of open communication and how to share how you really feel.

FROM THIS WORKSHOP YOU WILL TAKE AWAY:
- The knowledge that opening up with others is not as scary as you think it might be.
- The 3 keys to open communication.
- An understanding of how being vulnerable with a few people can affect change more than you think.

FAQs

What's the refund policy?

Tickets are non-refundable. Tickets can however be transferred to another person, or be transferred to a future Be Inspired Vancouver event. Please contact info@beinspiredvancouver.ca directly where this is required.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You do not need your printed ticket. We just need your name on arrival.

Why should I attend?

  1. Meet new people who share your passion for learning, and who are truly like-minded.
  2. Learn something new and leave inspired and with strategies to take action for yourself
  3. It is AMAZING value for money.

Can I come on my own?

Absolutely Yes!
The majority of talk attendees come as singles. Say yes to stepping out of your comfort zone for a few hours and the possibilities are endless. I (Sam – your host) have been a solo talk attendee in both London and Vancouver, so I understand the apprehension.These talks are designed to be fun, open and welcoming, and I’d love to meet you. When you arrive, just let me know and I’ll be happy to introduce you to someone who’s in the same boat.

Am I expected to speak?

The Be You. It’s Awesome talks are organised, so the speakers are ‘featured’ speakers. The talks are interactive meaning you can ask questions and give your thoughts (a huge plus for most attendees), but there is no pressure for an attendee to share their story unless they volunteer it. You will never be put on the spot – just share if you feel like it. And if not feel free to sit back and listen :), just don't forget your notbook and pen.
