What we're about

This group is for entrepreneurs in London looking to improve their social skills and network with people. We run workshops on developing social skills. Make sure to follow our main Meetup group Learn Social Dynamics - https://www.meetup.com?Learn-Social-Dynamics

This Meetup group is run by Social Shortcuts, we provide one to one social skills coaching in London including a free trial session lasting more or less one hour. Our website is www.socialshortcuts.com (http://www.socialshortcuts.com/) ( http://www.socialshortcuts.com/ )

Our Meetup group helps people with communication skills such as beating anxiety, conversation and body language as well as more advanced areas like being more witty, fast thinking and persuasive.

We also have a WhatsApp group chat where we discuss social skills, post tips and updates about events. You can join the group by clicking this link - https://chat.whatsapp.com/7hlntG4JFkB8VRmkaB6HGb .

This is to help people with any social situation such as making new friends, dating, work politics, reading people and dealing with bullying as well as many more areas.

We believe this is important for society as it is not taught in schools and people often fall behind in this area. Especially in a time where smart phones rule the world and people are more anxious and unsociable than ever, we have developed a way to coach people to become better and more confident at these important skills in the fastest and most healthy way possible.

If you think this is a good cause and/or you are interested in learning about social dynamics make sure to follow our group!

Our meet up is also a great place to make friends! We are after all working on communication skills.

This Meetup runs weekly workshops on different aspects of human interaction in order to help people to overcome shyness, making friends, being a better communicator and reader of other people.

Since the advent of technology the world is a more unhappy and isolated place than ever, by connecting people and making the world a more social place, and improving people’s social skills this makes a better world for us all to live in.

Social skills are a vital aspect of human life and are paramount to success in almost any field. Many people struggle in this area yet there is a lack of education in this sphere.

Social and communication skills are the most prized and sought after from all employers, not to mention essential to build a social life. An ability to connect, build rapport and communicate will bring your life to the next level.

The Meetup is also great way of meeting new people and practicing the skills taught in the workshops. The best place for social skills coaching in London.

The Team

Ryan was a quiet guy before he transformed himself into the charming, charismatic person he is today. He was relatively happy but he felt something was missing. He made a discovery that was to change the course of his life: that communicating effectively with others is the key to success. Ryan became obsessed with learning these elusive social skills; he sought out the most socially savvy people he could find and associated with them, he practiced and practiced these skills until he reached a very high level.

He now has over 9 years worth of knowledge and experience in social dynamics that he has gained through his own research and experimentation. This led on to coaching and helping others to overcome their own social fears and become proficient in social dynamics.

His ethos is to make the world a better place, he believes this can be achieved through increased social proficiency. If each person improves their social skills they would have more and better relationships, thus increasing the shared happiness on the planet, making it a more friendly and interactive place.

In his approach he is professional and laid back. The workshops are non-judgemental, welcoming and supportive to all types of people.

Gerthe studied psychology and social behaviour to better understand interaction and communication.

Gerthe has tremendous skill and knowledge in the realm of social dynamics and coaches other to create better social life, overcome shyness, work on their flirting skills and much more.
