Act on improving business skills at the Belgrade

Posted on 6 January 2012

On Tues 24 Jan we’re holding a creative workshop that will use theatrical techniques to help businesses and individuals develop key communication skills that can be easily transferred into day to day business.

Delivered by the theatre’s Creative Team, the practical workshop will employ the same techniques as those used when working with a company of actors to improve voice projection, presentation skills and team work.

Amongst other things participants will learn techniques to help with voice control and body language for meetings, business presentations and other forms of public speaking and develop communication skills required to build a rapport and engage colleagues in a business environment.

During the workshop participants will have the opportunity to practise their newly acquired skills using role play and scenario based work that aims to stimulate creative thinking and to further develop problem-solving skills.

Janthi Mills, General Manager at the Belgrade said, “As part of their day to day job our Creative Team are working with actors to ensure that actors can communicate effectively with an audience and it became apparent that the exercises they use would also be very effective in increasing people’s confidence and communication at work. It is also a great opportunity to take staff training outside the standard training room which can at first be daunting for participants. Feedback received from previous participants tells us that the experience has given them a real sense of achievement, especially after they have stood and commanded the auditorium from the theatre’s stage.”

The workshop will be held on Tues 24 Jan from 10am to 12.30pm at the Belgrade Theatre and may include presenting in either the Main Stage or the B2 auditorium. Attendance is £125 +VAT per person and this includes all course materials and tea and coffee.

Any profit made from the delivery of the business skills workshop will be used to support the theatre’s work in the local community, which is carried out by the Belgrade Community & Education Company.
