Communication Skills Masterclass

10-05-2017 09:15 Northern Stage

It’s easy to think communication is straight-forward. It isn’t, because communication occurs on multiple levels at once – physical, verbal, and psychological. Engaging with others is complex and to do it well requires skill and practice.

This workshop has been designed for those who need to communicate effectively with different types of people/personalities, deal with clients professionally and manage conversations. Using processes like those which actors use to create believable characters, you will build your understanding of how interpersonal dynamics work – the multiple levels of communication. The workshop will help you learn how to forge positive connections with your audience, how to tailor your interaction and delivery to suit different people, and how to manage your body, mind and emotions in the process.

This workshop includes:

  • Stepping into the scary space – how to make coming out of your comfort zone a positive experience
  • Speaking – how to use your voice to communicate engagingly
  • Body language – how to use your body language to send positive signals
  • Being spontaneous – learning to speak ‘off the cuff’
  • Building resilience – quieting the negative voice in your head

The schedule of the event is as follows:

  • Registration – 9.15am
  • Morning session – 9.30am to 12.30pm
  • Lunch break – 12.30pm to 1.30pm
  • Afternoon Session – 1.30pm to 5.00pm

Refreshments will be provided but lunch is not included.

Presentation Skills Masterclass

08-06-2017 09:15

Many of us are required to deliver presentations or pitches to clients or investors as part of our roles, but few of us have had training in this area. Designed as a follow on from the Communication masterclass, this workshop is for those who need to develop skills in speaking to audiences, including delivering formal presentations, pitches, and public speaking.

You will work with a theatre director on your own pitch or presentation, applying similar techniques to those used in a theatre rehearsal process, considering structure and how to present your content in a compelling way. You will be asked to come with a pre-prepared 2-minute presentation to work on throughout the day.

This workshop includes:

  • Use of voice and body language in presentations and pitches
  • Applying the science of persuasion to the delivery of your content
  • Stagecraft and use of visual aids, and avoiding ‘death-by-PowerPoint’
  • Practising your presentation on a stage and with an audience
  • Personalised feedback and coaching

The schedule of the event is as follows:

  • Registration – 9.15am
  • Morning session – 9.30am to 12.30pm
  • Lunch break – 12.30pm to 1.30pm
  • Afternoon Session – 1.30pm to 5.00pm

Refreshments will be provided but lunch is not included.
