The students at Schiller’s Madrid Campus had the chance to attend a workshop on Protocol and Professional Self-Image prepared by our Career Services Department and led by the Adecco company, the largest staffing firm in the world and a Fortune 500 company. The speaker, Isaya Chacon, is an Independent Consultant for Development and Training.
One of our International Business students, Lucia Martin, tells us about her experience at the workshop:
The workshop on Protocol and Self Image aimed at teaching us the importance of dressing and acting in an appropriate way in the professional world. We learned the difference that the length of a skirt or the buttoning of a jacket can make and how what we wear should be consistent to what we are trying to transmit. To prove this point, we were divided in teams and challenged to create the best and the worst professional look we could, so we would see for ourselves the way we would react to each of them.
However, we didn’t focus only on clothes. The workshop also addressed the attention we should give to our body language: our posture, the way we talk, the way we look, etc. Our image is what ultimately represents us, it is our cover letter and it gives more information about us that anything we might say.
We are our own brand and if we want to sell it, we need to show how confident, effective and great that brand is.
Thanks to everyone for coming to our annual Schiller Winter Ball 2017 to celebrate another successful year and making it memorable! The chosen venue this year was Print Media Lounge – Level 12, with stunning views of the city.
Starting with glass of champagne and opening speech by Mrs. Tanja Ward, scrumptious dinner was served, following by awards, Student Council elections, and lots of entertainment – our students, staff, faculty and guests danced to the music, enjoyed an open bar, raffle, photo booth and most of all, some great company, until the early hours. Everyone looked lovely in their dresses & suits, it was the perfect evening.
