On 16 November, 20 i-sense members attended a full day workshop to help improve their communication and presentation skills. The workshop was facilitated by Mortal Fools in collaboration with Northern Stage at Newcastle University. The workshop was about learning by doing, practising and observing others.
At the beginning of the day participants discussed their concerns when presenting and key themes from the discussion were address through activities during the day. These included brining the subconscious into awareness, dealing with fear, having an authentic communication style, controlling nerves through breathing techniques, and eye contact. Each participant got the chance to practice their skills in front of their colleagues, received constructive feedback, and help others by providing guidance.
It was a fantastic workshop with excellent participant feedback.
