Course Description

Influence & Rapport Workshop

Theatreworks Influence & Rapport - 1 day workshop in persuading and influencing skills

Led by specialist actor-trainers with a background in the performing arts, this high impact Influence & Rapport workshop provides delegates with a unique insight into how they can increase their influence using tried-and-tested acting techniques.

The one day programme is designed to be highly experiential, enabling delegates to practise and refine skills in:

  • Behaving more confidently and assertively in meetings
  • Persuading and influencing clients, colleagues & superiors
  • Improvising with confidence and dealing with the unexpected
  • Pitching ideas in new and creative ways

The experiential course takes place in a rehearsal room where participants will be given the opportunity to experiment with their communication style, trying out new techniques related to their voice, body and imagination. By the end of the workshop, they will thus have the confidence and skill needed to communicate in a more creative, influential way.
