The ability to remain present and alive in the moment free from anxiety, empowers the speaker to engage the audience thereby capturing their attention, consequently influencing outcomes.
If you’re like most people, you probably feel self-conscious or anxious presenting to an audience. Whether you are an academic, a professional presenter, working in a corporate or business environment, discover how these simple techniques can help you to relax, yet empower you to have impact.
You will benefit from three intensive workshops where you will be guided through the steps in exploring the connections between thoughts and emotions and how we use our body and voices to communicate.
Take advantage of the final workshop where participants will have the opportunity to road test their new skills in a relaxed and friendly environment with feedback from the workshop coaches. Delivered by respected Arts Academy Lecturer in Voice, Julianne Eveleigh, and esteemed actors and vocal coaches, Margaret Mills and Rob Meldrum.

Workshop with Margaret Mills: In this workshop you will learn strategies to structure your content to reach your audience, including strong beginnings and endings and honing your storytelling.
