What we're about

Description of Community Group:

It takes skill, resources and a community to create a successful business, be it a high-tech start-up or a small business. At Golden Gate University, many of our students choose to start their own ventures upon graduation, building on the knowledge they've gained with us. Business owners also come to GGU looking to fill gaps in their training and gain the confidence it takes to compete in the climate today. Many of our faculty are themselves investors and entrepreneurs, and bring a wealth of experience to the mix.

This group is yet another step in our commitment to providing resources to the broader Bay Area business world. We hope to provide a platform for dialog between entrepreneurs, investors, students, Civic leaders and educators through hosting networking events and helping others do the same.

Who Should Attend
* Aspiring Entrepreneurs
* New Entrepreneurs
* Experienced Entrepreneurs looking to help the 2 groups above

* Educators

* Students who are getting the skills to start their own businesses

Are you ever stuck making small talk or unable to get up the courage to introduce yourself and make a great first impression so you can meet new people? Do you wonder why some people exude magnetism and charisma? Fortunately, this fall, Jaunty is here to rejuvenate your social skills with our effective, FREE workshop! This fun, interactive workshop is Jaunty's first step into social mastery and includes a mix of theory, exercises, and virtual socialization. We’ll look into the science of social intelligence and practice our tried and tested techniques that will enhance the way you connect with people. Our workshop covers many social graces such as conversational agility and belief systems, and we’ll examine what may be holding you back from your highest potential.

About your Instructor: Craig Gibbons is a Head Instructor at Jaunty. Growing up in a small town near San Luis Obispo, Craig struggled with shyness. Wanting to change, he later delved deep into social and emotional intelligence through academic study and personal experiments. In college, he realized he wanted to work with people and switched majors from Computer Science to Human Performance. Both Eric (Jaunty's founder) and Craig spent thousands of hours experimenting and researching the limits of social behavior to create the tried and tested course material for Jaunty. They are tirelessly dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and become social dynamos. FAQs How do I access the workshop?
