Leadership In Action
ONE-DAY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Some are born great,
Some achieve greatness,
And some have greatness thrust upon them.

LEADERSHIP IN ACTION: SPEAKING AND PRESENTING FOR LEADERSHIP SUCCESS
Are you a current or emerging leader looking to improve your presentation and interpersonal leadership skills through the power of words?
Many of Shakespeare’s great characters were leaders, and the words he gave them emphasised that leadership and cemented their place in history.
Join Bell Shakespeare for this one-day Professional Development intensive that combines unique insights into the communication styles of Shakespeare’s great leaders with tangible techniques from the actors’ toolkit to create leadership communication success.
Throughout the workshop you’ll learn to develop your own personal leadership communication style, enabling you to:
— Present with confidence, charisma and authenticity;
— Enhance your leadership style through performance techniques;
— Use story-telling and speech-making to inspire your colleagues;
— Apply leadership lessons from Shakespeare to contemporary situations.
Bell Shakespeare’s professional artists and facilitators will provide you with tangible techniques from the actors’ toolkit, all while exploring the communication strategies required in modern leadership through the lens of one of the greatest writers in history – William Shakespeare.
