You have a presentation at work, a speech to deliver, an important message to communicate – but how? Admit it, too many presentations in the professional world are just plain boring. In Powerful and Persuasive Presentations, we will examine how ideas, both ancient and contemporary, can transform a lackluster speech into one that entertains, persuades and inspires. Drawing on modes of persuasion from Aristotle and injecting the neuroscience of storytelling, your speech will transform from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
Embodiment means staying present with our senses, our experiences and our emotions, whether we judge them good or bad. This workshop will use music medicine, circle work, experiential exercises and conscious dance to help you connect with yourself and others. This workshop is participatory and is open to all bodies of any shape and size and can accommodate wheelchairs.
