Hay Festival Offers

 

A Poll with a prize, also free and half price coaching offers!

 

Hello fellow Hay Festival goers.

I’m Pauline, so very good to meet you.

This will be my first time at the Hay Festival.

I know! Shocking!

A case of serious cultural neglect now thankfully put right.

All being well, I plan to be found wandering very happily around the festival from Saturday 25th to Tuesday 28th May.

I’ll be the Scot at Hay with the Harris Tweed handbag. Do wave if you see me.

I’m going to be there as a festival goer AND mixing in some introvert leader work as well.

That’s what I do for a living…less stress, greater ease for introverted leaders doing world changing work in an extrovert dominated world.

Yes, yes, I’m getting to the offers…scroll down if you can’t bear to wait any longer…but you will miss a free prize.

 

The Hay Introvert Poll

Some estimates have it that we now live in a world dominated by extroverts, 70% extrovert, 30% introvert. And that this makes it a struggle for introverts to find places where their preferred inner world of thoughts and imagination is valued and can be given time.

If Hay

 ‘gathers people together to think about the world as it is and to imagine how it might be’,

then I believe it might just be an introvert’s paradise.

 

I’d love to know what the introvert/extrovert mix at Hay is.

I’m an introvert and I’m visiting the festival with two other introverts. That’s us off to a high introvert start.

What do you reckon the introvert %age of hay festival goers is going to be?

I’m going high.

I’m going to go out on a limb and hazard a guess of 80% or higher.

 

Take part in the poll, say whether you’re an introvert or extrovert and let’s find out.

* Go here if you’re not sure what you are.

 

And for fun, and because I’m quite the giddy kipper at the prospect of my first Hay Festival,

I’m giving away a  PRIZE 

An Introverted Gifts Coaching session

The person who guesses closest to the poll results of what percentage of Hay Festival goers are introverts will win a free session worth £75, so include your details when you take part in the poll so I can let you know if you’ve won.

The session will be transferrable to your favourite introvert if you don’t want it for yourself. I’m also open to tailoring a session to   your needs whether they’re introverted ones or not.

*If you’re not sure whether you’re an introvert, Susan Cain, the author of  “Quiet, the Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking”, has devised a quick questionaire to establish whether you’re, introvert, extrovert or in the middle, ambivert.

You can find it online here or come and find me, with my Harris Tweed handbag, at the festival for a hard copy.

Take part in the Poll

Once you know what you are, there are three ways to take part in the poll.

You can

1. Tweet me

@paulineesson using the poll hashtag and your name, your preference, your hay introvert estimate.

Eg @paulineesson #hayintrovertpoll Your name, I’m an introvert/extrovert/ambivert, I estimate x%age introverts at #hayfestival

or

2. Leave a comment here at the blog

On the festival poll blog post. Scroll down to the end of the page to ‘Post a Comment’ and write in the comments box.

Leave Your name and Email address, I’m an introvert/extrovert/ambivert, I estimate x%age introverts at Hay

or

3. Come and thrust a piece of  paper with aforementioned details into my Harris Tweed handbag.

Name, email, I’m an introvert/extrovert/ambivert, I estimate x%age introverts at Hay.

Maybe better check it’s me, the Harris Tweed handbag carrying, Introverted Leader coaching Scot, first of course : )

You never know how many Harris Tweed handbag carrying people there’ll be at Hay. Maybe that’s a poll for next year.

Poll results

The poll results will be published here at the blog after the festival so come and visit to find out .

Or if  you sign up for the newsletter you’ll get the results delivered straight  to your inbox.

 

 

 The Two Offers

 

1. Free 1:1 coaching sessions  ‘So I’m an Introvert?’

 

In these free sessions we’ll cover

– the nature of preferences

– what you gain by working with rather than against your preferences

– whether what you’re doing now works with or against your preferences

– what it could feel like to work with your preferences

At 3.10pm each day, Sat 25th to Tue 28th May

First, if you don’t know whether you’re an introvert, take Susan Cain’s questionaire here, online, and find out.

 

*O2 have advised me that mobile reception is working and there’s no planned maintainance work so if you get my answermachine it should only be because I’m in a session. If you get the answermachine, leave a message and if there are sessions still available I’ll call you back. If you don’t hear back from me it’ll be because the sessions are all taken. I’m sorry.

We can still talk all things introvert at the blog. And if you sign up for the newsletter you’ll hear first about any future offers.

It’s my birthday in August…it’s highly likely there’ll be a sizeable offer in celebration of my sizeable birthday then, if not before.
