Active listening, solution-driven negotiation and delivering difficult messages will all be explored through practical work, as well as using creative approaches to ensure you deliver your message authentically and effectively.

The Power of Storytelling, 11.30am – 1pm 
Telling stories is a fundamental human trait, effective storytelling helps you to frame your messages and engage emotionally with your audience.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to utilise storytelling techniques in the workplace. Using exercises from performance training, we will practice using the classic story structure to present information, as well as exploring other common narrative structures.

Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace, 2pm – 3.30pm 
This new workshop has been developed with leading movement and drama therapists from Central’s MA programme.
Discover a range of creative techniques to support your health and wellbeing, allowing you to think outside the box and offer wider options. You will learn small, simple steps to take care of yourself at work on a daily basis. These can be called upon quietly at your desk, at home, on your commute or with colleagues.

Presenting with Confidence, 4pm – 5.30pm 
Find out how to incorporate voice, performance practice and actor training techniques into presentations.
This workshop gives you the tools to stay calm and engaged when the spotlight is on you. We will use exercises drawn from actor training focusing on body, breath and voice to enable you to calm your nerves, own your space and deliver your message with confidence. Exploring dramatic devices and vocal techniques we will show you how to bring your content to life and get your message heard.
