Due to popular demand from performers we are organising another half day weekend workshop addressing 3 core areas of performance. The workshop is open to the general public as well as performers across domains.
*This event will be limited to a small number of attendees in order to allow for interaction and detailed feedback.*
We will address:
1. Productivity & Procrastination: Biological, psychological and environmental influences on our behaviours and strategies to maximise productivity and the creation of your ideas and vision.
2. Anxiety, Energy & Focus Control - Powerfully using excitement and anxiety for performance output. We will consider stress biology, lifestyle management and strategies to energise output and overcome obstacles to creativity and performance.
3. Communicating Persuasively & Authentically: How does judgement work? And perception under pressure? How can we maximise our communicative potential and deliver with authenticity and maintain congruence between personality, message, receiver and context? How do we communicate persuasively, especially under pressure and with people we do not yet know? What if we cannot use words to communicate?
