Event description

About this Event

“Improvisation connects you with people…it teaches you to recover quickly after a set-back. It will make you a better listener… a better salesperson… a better leader” Matt Wohlfarth in Forbes.

Each of the Tin Whistle professional development courses are designed to support and develop delegates influence in the workplace and, in turn, their organisation’s impact in the wider marketplace.

The Tin Whistle team of professional actors and trainers use drama school training principles to engage and stimulate delegates in a supportive yet challenging environment.

Topics

The underpinning values of great teamwork will be explored in a fun and engaging environment.

Topics will include:

Teamwork and Trust

Effective Communication

Empathy

Personal Boundaries
