Personal Impact Workshop

Theatreworks Personal Impact - 1 day workshop in communication and influencing skills

Drawing on the techniques used by professional actors and directors, this Theatreworks Personal Impact workshop is designed to help delegates improve their communication skills in an experiential and deeply memorable way.

The one day programme is designed as a way for delegates to enhance their confidence in using their body, voice and imagination to communicate in a creative way.
