Event description

Description

This JCI London Spotlight session will look at Maximising Personal Impact in Presenting. We’ll look at common pitfalls and provide practical tips on how to overcome these, we’ll explore impromptu situations and how to remain confident under pressure. Individuals identify their own personal strengths and weaknesses when it comes to impactful communication. We’ll be using a drama-based approach to explore breathing, voice, body language and presence. Participants will get a chance to put these skills into practice throughout the session and finish on a final practice presentation, on which they’ll receive peer feedback. Participants will leave with a toolkit of practical skills they can call upon when presenting and speaking in the workplace.

The 2.5 hour session will be led by Nicholas Myles and Rachel Crowther, founders of drama-based learning company Different Duck. Nick and Rachel are both experienced training facilitators and professional actors. They met whilst studying for a Masters at Central School of Speech and Drama in 2011 and soon after started developing the idea of combining the practical skills they’d learnt at drama school into the world of business and communication.

What do we do?

Different Duck was formed to bridge the gap between learning and doing. We place experience-based, active learning at the heart of everything we do in order to offer a different type of training and development. Our workshops are experiential and fun and participants leave with instantly applicable skills to use in the workplace. We provide bespoke, drama-based training on a range of communication skills. We use drama to bring the content to life and enabling participants to gain a deeper understanding by engaging and interacting with live case studies.

The hashtag for the event is #JCILondon
