Minnesota Regional Chapter Presentation Skills: Communicating Your Story

May 22, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm CDT

The Minnesota region of PEAK Grantmaking is excited to present a fun and inspired day of learning. We are partnering with the Guthrie Theater to offer a new twist on how to communicate your story.

By exploring the techniques and systems professional actors use to communicate a story, this workshop/seminar will provide an introduction to the concepts of theatre-based training to improve presentation and communication skills, enabling participants to more clearly and strategically express their ideas and establish clear connections with audiences, colleagues and clients.

Working with a professional artist, participants will step into the role of the actor, exploring techniques and strategies theater artists employ to improve focus and presence, establish strong connections with an audience, speak with an authentic voice and communicate the story with clarity and passion

Participants will:

  • Leave this session inspired to continue what you learned outside of the session.
  • Have new tools and strategies to become a better public speaker.
  • Learn to think more creatively on how to approach, build and deliver a presentation.

The Guthrie Theater’s Teaching Artists are professional theatre artists and educators who are passionate about sharing their craft. They are skilled at creating a safe and comfortable space for participants to explore the concepts covered.

This workshop is a combination of seminar and on your feet exercises. Participants are encouraged to come dressed in comfortable clothing that they are able to move in
