We are looking for 18 participants to take part in this pilot workshop that brings the best of what educational psychology and performing arts have to offer to those who want to improve their design and delivery skills. This workshop brings the best of what educational psychology and performing arts have to offer to those who want to improve their design and delivery skills. It will help you determine how to design your presentations and workshops for maximum impact and retention. It will help you deliver in a way that brings out your best.
WHY WE ARE DEVELOPING THIS WORKSHOP
Whether you present, lecture, lead workshops or teams, you will find this workshop rewarding and fun.
We created Connect because we've met too many talented people constrained by design and delivery rules that don't actually exist. (i.e. "I have to use PowerPoint." "I can't appear nervous." "I have to know everything about the subject.")
These beliefs prevent us from delivering at our best and they separate us from the groups we work with. Connect brings together the best of what learning psychology, performing arts and communications have to offer those who want to design and deliver at their best.
