Comedy techniques for public speaking (MANCHESTER WORKSHOP)
Sat, October 22, 2016, 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM BST
I'm doing my solo Edinburgh show at the Women in Comedy festival on the 22 Oct and so thinking to run a 'Comedy Technique for Pitching and Presenting' workshop during the day. I run this course in London and am excited to bring it to Manchester.
‘Eleanor Conway brings a huge amount of energy into these sessions dedicated to making the best out of your public speaking opportunities. A highly practical series that leaves you with manageable tips to face any pitch, presentation or even a high profile TV or radio opportunity! Highly recommended.' SOHO HOUSE GROUP.
After a packed run of repeat workshops for Soho House, comedian and MC, Eleanor Conway, brings a whole day of public speaking training with a comedy twist to the masses. Instead of learning from one of those twee trainer types, you'll be taking advice from someone that's died more time on stage than they can remember... So that you don't have to... (You're welcome!)
Eleanor will show you how to win your audience over, build your confidence and generate humour and engagement from the get go. You will leave with your skills visibly imporved and you will have laughed and been active from the first instance. You will learn...
