Event description

Description

This public speaking workshop uniquely plunges participants effortlessly into a world of storytelling and drama improvisations. When participants are fully immersed in an experience, this immediately takes away the fear of "speaking in public". This also enables participants to connect authentically to their own values without the fear of showmanship - for it is in the performing of stories that we find our voice and our identities.

Workshop Objectives :
(i) learn the principles of improvisation
(ii) transform objects into symbols and using them as metaphors
(iii) apply stage dynamics to engage audiences, to remember "scripts"
(iv) present spontaneously with confidence and embody leadership presence


Target Audience:
Corporate Executives, Entrepreneurs, and Thought Leaders who speak regularly

Requirements:
1. Please be relatively fit and agile to engage in physical exercises and floorwork
2. No makeup, no jewellery and accessories to be worn
3. Bring your own bottle of water, towel, and change of (dry) clothes
4. Wear only light clothes to facilitate ease of movement

Photography and Videography Work:
All participants will need to sign a photography and videography release form as the session will be recorded for both research documentation and marketing purposes.
