As an initiative to inspire and raise awareness of work opportunities for students (aged 10 – 13), the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth...

As an initiative to inspire and raise awareness of work opportunities for students (aged 10 – 13), the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth invited around 100 businesses and training providers to the 2014 Portsmouth Opportunities Fair, held at the heart of the city at the Portsmouth Guildhall.

I rallied the troops and a team of Fasset colleagues joined me to host our stand, offering anyone who walked past, the opportunity to take the ‘Fasset challenge’ - a positive attitude test and handshake analysis.

I was impressed with how seriously the students took these activities and they seemed genuinely interested in finding out their score (as were their parents!). Firstly they selected some positive attributes about themselves and finally they gave us their best handshake. Really the idea was to get them thinking about what positive qualities they have and what possibly could be an area to work on. The handshake is a great way of creating a good and lasting impression, so better to be firm and confident - not a wet lettuce in sight!

The day was exhausting but wholly worthwhile. We spoke to 149 students and felt satisfied that a good number of them walked away a more confidence in themselves.

I came away feeling satisfied that we had helped raise a number of young people’s personal awareness of the importance of a positive attitude in all aspects of life. They understood how a professional handshake can leave a great impression; and that a bit of self-confidence really does go a long way.

I’m looking forward to doing it again next year!
