Presenting with NABS..

Well, after our last NABS event (which Sam and myself presented at, and seemed to go well - no-one ran, at least), there's another to tell you about. The details are below:

'Present to Persuade' is a two hour workshop for graduates, taking place at Fallon.

Presentation skills are the one business skill you need to answer, whatever your discipline.

In this two hour workshop, Speakers Corner will give you tips to communicate your messages more effectively, and help get others to act.

It takes place on the 2nd of September, from 2pm to 4pm. Hope to see you there. You can register by emailing Siobhan Long at

NABS Graduate Workshop..

Hello there.

As some of you may know, NABS is a charity for the communications industries. They do a heckuva lot of charitable stuff, such as helping recently unemployed people find work, housing, and even help out with grad recruitment and help creatives find partners.

They're also putting on a graduate recruitment half day at JWT, and Sam and I have been asked to speak. Details are below:

"Thomas Crapper did not invent the flush toilet. A duck's quack doesn't have an echo. Advertising is not all long lunches and witty lines. Come to JWT on Monday 24th of August at 10am to find out more about the truths of advertising: What an agency does, how it works and how does it. And how to get in."

The agenda is below:

1. Welcome address (10am)

2. JWT welcome (10.05-15)

3. How an agency works (10.15-45)
