Detailed event descriptions:

1. Self-Presentation Workshop with Improv Theater Coaches (17.00h to 18.30h)

We begin the workshop with introduction ‘warm-up’ exercises designed to introduce participants to one another in a fun way while building core improv concepts: agreement and support. We will use these core concepts to frame exercises that focus on guilt-free, shame-free confidence and commitment to their own beautiful ideas. Participants will walk away with tools they can apply to real-world scenarios like networking at conferences and acing interviews.

Conducted by Comedy Café Berlin Training School
2. Get-Together & ECS Representative Elections (starting at 19.00h)

At this bi-annual Get-Together of the ECS section, we want to give you the opportunity to meet your ECS representatives and your fellow ECS colleagues from all 9 Geo.X partner institutions. Here, you can socialize and network with your peers, while enjoying sponsored beverages and snacks.

This time we will also held the election of 2 new ECS representatives at this event. They will be leading and representing the Geo.X ECS section for the spring 2019 to fall 2020 term, incl. 3 consecutive Geo.X steering committee meetings and shaping with their ideas and enthusiasm the future of the ECS section. But first our candidates will introduce themselves in a short pitch and thereafter every Geo.X ECS attending this event can vote for her/his favorite candidate. We will announce the elected winners on that night as well!

If you want to candidate for the ECS representative position, then please send an email until January 15th, 2019 to early-careers@geo-x.net

Last but not least, we will reveal the winner of our ongoing ECS logo contest. If you are creative and would like to design a logo for this competition, please send your logo ideas via email until January 15th, 2019 to the ECS section: early-careers@geo-x.net
