In this age of digital communication, many of us find it challenging to communicate effectively when speaking to others, especially from a leadership position. This workshop is designed to help you develop confidence and clarity as an oral communicator, whether speaking to one person or to a large group.

Learn strategies to:

  • prepare your voice and body 

  • engage your listeners by using a variety of vocal dynamics and body language

  • practice “active listening”, both to your audience and to your impulses

The first part of the workshop will focus on physical and vocal exercises, seeking to develop personal awareness of unhelpful habits that can impede your ability to connect with your “audience”. The second part of the workshop asks participants to “take the stage” in order to apply this awareness to the experience of speaking to a group. Participants are encouraged to share specific examples of speaking experiences in the workplace, particularly if they prepared a “script” for the occasion.
