"No bullshit: I’ve always considered myself a bad dater, and it wasn’t until I attended SPARK, that I realized why." - Jen P. TimeOutNY
"Awesome session. That's worth saying again, awesome. SPARK helped me see that overcoming the comfortable is a good way to start growing!" - Roger M.
"Why is no one else doing this? This workshop is exactly what I never knew I needed." - Kira C.
"I credit SPARK for why I'm in a healthy relationship now with open communication and I've taken what I learned there and brought it to my business life too- speaking authentically is 10x easier." - Helen C.
"Very well run! The organization and professionalism went a long way to making it very constructive." - Brett A.

We all base our opinions of people on first impressions. How do you find out what other people think when they first meet you? You might be surprised to learn that others perceive you differently than you perceive yourself. In this workshop, you’ll get an honest assessment from a group of total strangers.

Minna will guide the group through a series of information-building exercises, including improv and acting techniques, that will help you to establish your authentic presence. Then, she’ll facilitate a structured analysis that gets to the root of what’s holding you back, with input from the rest of the group. Through honest feedback from your peers, you’ll learn what you’re really saying with your body language and tone. It’s your very own first impression focus group.

A Better First Impression is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear the truth about your communication style and learn real strategies for presenting yourself to others with confidence. You have to come experience this workshop to know what it’s all about. You’ll leave with the tools you need to rock your next business networking event or first date.

Close the gap between what you think you’re communicating, and what you’re actually saying. #daretoSPARK
