Classroom Presence is a half-day seminar for business school professors and other faculty members that focuses on maximising their impact in the classroom.
Drawing on techniques from theatre and performance, the work is delivered through a mixture of individual coaching, group exercises, demonstration and simulation of classroom scenarios, to encourage delegates into more effective communication. The approach is experiential, with delegates on their feet and ‘having a go’.
Dramatic Resources provides specialist communication-skills training that draws on techniques from the theatre and actor-training. The work is interactive, with participants actively encouraged to engage with, and try out for themselves new communication styles. The approach is sometimes challenging, but also great fun and deeply memorable.
Richard is an actor and director as well as a trainer and coach.
