Personal Impact

This session will be held in person. You will receive an Outlook Calendar Invite closer to the event providing venue details.

By examining the three channels of communication – the body, breath and voice – you will learn the techniques to come across with greater authority, impact and influence. The session will improve your performance in a variety of situations such as: staff briefings; leading meetings; effective networking; interviews and appraisals – allowing you to hold your space and relate to others with ease.

Voice and physicality

  • Examine posture, body language and how it affects presence and impact
  • Learn relaxation techniques to help you when you are communicating
  • Practice articulation exercises to improve the clarity of your speech

Making an impact

  • Develop an open style which portrays confidence and authority
  • Practice making an entrance and holding an audience’s attention
  • Learn how to better engage an audience
  • Discover how the use of tone, the pause and emphasis improve communication skills
  • Our professional courses are highly practical and include theatre-based exercises.
