Increasing My Presence – In Person


Course Outline

This inspiring and innovative Business Skills Training & Development Programme takes place on the Everyman Stage and is facilitated by actors who will help you increase your presence in this 1 day, hands on workshop. 

Actors’ success is down to their ability to influence and engage their audience; to encourage a suspension of disbelief; to communicate effectively; and to persuade through enthralling story-telling. Success in business is often dependent on exactly the same expertise.

“Today has had a huge impact on my personal & professional confidence. I think it has been one  of the most beneficial courses I have been on to date.” – ‘Presence’ participant – Everyman  

Whether playing a leadership role within your organisation or interacting with your customers, your ‘performance’ is key to a successful outcome. The Everyman and Real Learning are collaborating with Cork Chamber Skillnet to bring an inspiring and innovative Business Skills Training & Development Programme to The Everyman stage.

Increasing My Presence is a day-long workshop designed to give you an insight into the skills, tactics and strategies that generate ‘impact’. Learning from the techniques of actors, you’ll discover and develop your personal strategy to manage and lead others more effectively. This workshop is best suited to those anyone looking to enhance their own leadership presence.

A light lunch will be provided on the day for participants.

“Gave me the confidence, feedback and techniques to further develop” – ‘Presence’ participant – Everyman 

Not only are these skills transferable to business conversations, they are critical to success within a corporate environment. This workshop will give you the opportunity to work with professional, accomplished actors for a day on the stage of Cork’s Cultural Home, The Everyman – learning from the skills, tactics and strategies that they employ every day of their lives.

“Confidence boosting, exciting and raw! A very unique course and one I’d highly recommend.” – Presence participant at The Everyman
