sTAND AND DELIVER ANXIETY-FREE PERFORMANCE & PRESENTATION with AILSA PIPER
This one-day workshop will open up the mysteries of performance and presentation.
Whether you’re going on the road to promote your new book, giving a birthday speech, addressing a company meeting, pitching an idea or taking part in a panel interview, Ailsa Piper shares vital tactics for feeling comfortable while cutting through, compelling and holding an audience, and delivering your message with clarity and brio. Ailsa’s coaching style is unique because she is both a professional writer and director. She cuts through habits, opens techniques arising from your personal style, and delivers practical and lasting results. Her students call her work transformational - she calls it practical. Covering all aspects of performance including breath, physicality, habits or fears, Ailsa can transform your experience of presentation - and usually, you’ll come away with an improved draft in the process. Be prepared to be observed like never before, and to challenge your preconceptions.
Suitable for: Anyone who needs to speak to a group of people. All levels of experience welcome.
Location: Crows Nest, Sydney NSW
Bring:The first 10 minutes of a speech or presentation (and no, winging it won’t cut the mustard – that’s the first lesson!).
