Want to feed your brain and your stomach? Join us for a dining experience like no other at one of our unique DIM SUM TALKS - where you can delve into a fascinating subject whilst sampling a selection of Ping Pong's finest dim sum.

London is one of the biggest and busiest cities in the world, yet it is also one of the loneliest places to live. We are surrounded by people all the time but with more people using the phones and other devices, we are losing our ability to connect with one another.

It seems that everyone in London is career focused and the main social events revolve around drinking with work colleagues. By the time the weekend comes around do you have things planned or are you too tired to do anything? Even being in a crowd can feel lonely and the people you really want to see are just too busy.

Social anxiety is also something that is talked about a lot. If you want to go and meet new people but you suffer from anxiety, it can be really hard. If it is all work and no play, then what is the point of living in London? A poor social life can sometimes lead to isolation, fatigue, depression and low self esteem. People often put off the social life development by indulging in box sets and using social media to keep in contact with people they never see in person. If you want to learn how to really connect with new people, then this is the event for you.

This talk and mini workshop will cover;

  • Main sources of Social Anxiety and what to do about it
  • How to pro-actively take charge of your social life
  • Where to find where the people you really want to be with go, and how to approach them
  • How to maintain social circles
  • How social dynamics really work
  • How to use social media properly to maintain social circles
  • How to plan your social life and boost your self esteem
  • Why first impressions are so important and how to make the best one

This is going to be a highly interactive workshop and you will leave with a clear plan of what to do. Everything will be real world based and will involve learning skill sets, not just mindset.

Your Host : Matt Kendall

Proactive is often a word used to describe Matt and his lifestyle. At aged 20 he started a band promotion business in Manchester and become well established in the music scene. He then went on to start a business networking event that attracted over 100 creative types.

Matt is also a qualified therapist and works with clients mainly for social anxiety. Matt tells his clients "you cannot therapy your way out of an issue!" Matt believes that action is much more effective that trying to get the right "mindset" or asking the universe for help.

Matt arrived in London 6 year ago with just a suitcase and a laptop. Armed with only his skills, he has built up businesses, social circles and Meetup groups. Matt currently runs several Meetup groups which total nearly 20k people. He has done all this on his own by using very simple systems.

Matt also worked as a dating coach for a number of years, helping both men and women to develop their social skills. Unlike a lot of people in the self help industry, Matt clearly walks the walk and demonstrates everything in his own life. His real world experience, straight forward approach and clear steps can help anyone to start over and get a life they are happy to lead.

Dim Sum Talks are a brand new concept, taking our well known Funzing Talks @ Night events - and turning them into a dining experience with a difference. Alongside Ping Pong, we've pulled together an impressive array of leading intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work get togethers.

Alongside a fascinating talk from one of our top speakers, you will receive a 6 x dim sum platter exclusively put together by the culinary experts over at the famous Ping Pong restaurant group. Ping Pong is a contemporary and lively group of restaurants serving Dim Sum, cocktails and Chinese teas. An ideal choice for a quick, light lunch or a fun night out - as they say, all the fun is in the sharing.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
