About the training

#communication   #presentation   #soft skills   #body language   #persuasive speech   #debate training

Build your Presence is a presentation, communication and debate training, which uses the techniques of the theatre in the skill development process. The theatre has always created its impact by combining meaning with the actors’ physical presence. Presentations and business communication, however, often focus too much on the meaning and neglect the aspect of presence, thus depriving the message of its powerful impact. The training is primarily based on techniques, strategies, and games taken from the professional theatre and redesigned for the needs of business professionals for successful persuasive communication.


The novelty of Build your Presence:


- innovative adaptation of theatre practice to business purposes

- focused improvement of communication skills

- transformation of presentation anxiety into performer energy

- mapping out techniques for maintaining attention with the aid of theatre practice

- a learning process built on games and practical situational exercises


Training offers the following packages:

- 2-4 hours (INTRODUCTION)
- 11-12 hours (ADVANCED STRUCTURE)
- Tailored training contents

 For most of the packages, a multiple-day organization is suggested for efficiency. Content and length can be modified upon request.
