About Slow Dinners
The Slow School of Business (Slow School) is a people-powered learning community dedicated to building purpose-driven and prosperous businesses that make the world a better place. We come together each month over a meal and a glass of wine to learn something new and make deep connections. At Slow School everyone pitches in, that’s why we ask you to bring your ideas, your passion and a plate and/or a bottle of something special to share.
About our topic – Humanise your Business
At the core of business lies the deceptively simple truth that ‘people buy from people’. The human attention span is now just 8 seconds, so the pressure is on to make an impact. People want to know, ‘why should I buy from you?’, and it’s our responsibility to give them a good reason.
People buy on emotion, it’s not rational, so we must reach in and touch their spirit. Is it possible to do that in just 8 seconds? It’s a cliché yet it’s a clue, ‘a picture is worth a 1000 words’. The solution is simple. It starts with you.
What you will learn
– The four key pillars that provide the bedrock for humanising your business
– How to describe you and your business in ways that inspire your market
– Experience first-hand how connection works in a simple experiment
– How to translate your uniqueness from words into captivating photographs.
About our Workshop Leader
“I believe your life runs like a movie in real time, and photography gives you the power to hit ‘pause’ on the best bits.”
