Event Description

CHARISMA 2.0: The Performance Edge 

Owen Fitzpatrick, Poll Moussolides, Ruairi O'Connor and Terry Small

22nd - 24th April, 2016

In this 3 day event, you will get the opportunity to dive even deeper into the essence of charisma and communicating with impact. Owen returns with his most advanced charisma workshop to date. Charisma 2.0 is open to anyone who has an interest in transforming how they communicate.  

For those who have never attended an OFI event, prepare for an intensive, fun and jam packed three days where you will learn more about yourself, how you perform at your best and how you can make a real impact when you communicate.

For those who have attended The Charisma Masterclass or Charisma Bootcamp, you will find these three days as offering you the opportunity of combining new insights into lessons already learned with more advanced training on the area of Charisma.

Charisma 2.0 is not about ‘making’ people charismatic. It’s about you learning to develop the way you speak to others so you can do so in a far more engaging way. It’s about mastering the art of entertaining and entrancing others through a spellbinding presentation, both one to one and in groups.

Owen has built this workshop with new participants and alumni in mind. He has changed the format slightly so that he gets to spend more time teaching but, as usual, we will have some special guests that we will announce soon.
