From Shoreditch to Liverpool Street to Kings Cross to……Paddington! Join us for our next edition of JCI Goes Social on Wednesday 28th August for some alfresco drinking and dining at the summery Pergola Paddington. An open air terrace set over two beautifully decorated floors, it’s the perfect place to unwind and meet other Jaycees in an area specifically booked for us.
Come and join us at this cosy traditional British pub in Westminster that serves a wide and constantly changing range of cask conditioned ales, bottled lagers, and wines from around the world (not to mention some classic pub grub). Whether you’re a member already or just looking to meet other like-minded people we’d love to see you there!
This JCI London Spotlight session will look at Maximising Personal Impact in Presenting. We’ll look at common pitfalls and provide practical tips on how to overcome these, we’ll explore impromptu situations and how to remain confident under pressure. Individuals identify their own personal strengths and weaknesses when it comes to impactful communication. We’ll be using a drama-based approach to explore breathing, voice, body language and presence. Participants will get a chance to put these skills into practice throughout the session and finish on a final practice presentation, on which they’ll receive peer feedback. Participants will leave with a toolkit of practical skills they can call upon when presenting and speaking in the workplace.
In honour of the Ten Outstanding Young Persons’ Programme (TOYP) please join us for an evening of fine cuisine and drink as we congratulate the winners of our local award hosted at the Guildhall.
TOYP is a prestigious local and international initiative to recognise the incredible achievements of young people in their chosen fields. These nominees will then go on to represent London at the JCI National Convention in November and hopefully be forwarded to the global competition where past winners have included actress Melissa Johns, life coach Anthony Robbins, former president John F. Kennedy and ice hockey player Wayne Gretzky.
Additionally this event will celebrate a significant 50 year anniversary for the achievements of Bill Fraser OBE who served as the local JCI London President in 1969.
This will be a great opportunity to hear the inspiring stories of active citizens in the London community and connect with other JCI members and guests so get your ticket now!
