Whether you’re an actor seeking skills to be better storytellers on stage, or perhaps your job requires you to have constant human connection and interaction on a daily basis, or if you simply want people to be a more ‘fun and interesting speaker’, this workshop will definitely help you attain all the essential skills to be a more captivating, influential and confident speaker.
