How to perform in high-stake situations: From self-doubt to self-confidence

22.11.2023 kl. 11:13
This Friday 24.11 at Women's Café in English we have the pleasure of welcoming early career researcher Mandira Halder, as our guest. She will give us a session about how to develop confidence from the core.

In her own words:

“It is often thought that confidence is innate and that it comes naturally to some people. There is also a myth that feeling confident is always about being successful and positive, but the reality is that self-doubt can creep in from time to time and shake our self-confidence. To deal with that, we need to develop confidence from the core and this kind of confidence is built through training to perform in high-stress situations.”

In this workshop Mandira will present vocal techniques about speaking audibly and showing authority through body posture. During the session we will also discuss how to deal with stress with the help of breathing techniques.

This workshop is meant to develop your oral presentation skills (pitches, meetings, interviews) to make an impact in your professional or personal life. Attendants are asked wear comfortable clothes and beforehand write a small script and bring it to the meeting. We will practise performing this script using the techniques above.

Born in India, Mandira Halder is passionate about music and rhythm since the age of two and speaks many languages. But bear in mind, this is not a session about singing well, it’s about developing an impactful voice through healthy posture, effective breathing, and speech articulation.

We open at 12 and close at 14. Just show up, no registration needed. The session starts at 12.15 and the location is Lilla Luckan Helsingfors, Yrjönkatu 27, second floor. We serve coffee and tea and something to snack on.

The Women's Café in English -meetings are organised in a relaxed, informal way around a cup of tea or coffee. Make new friends and get involved in what is happening locally.

The cafe is organized by Svenska Kvinnoförbundet i Sörnäs in collaboration with Luckan integration.
