Course description

The Theatreworks Personal Impact course gives participants the opportunity to explore and develop their skills in relation to how they present themselves and how they affect others, in a variety of settings and situations.

"It creates fifty times more awareness than a million books on the subject" Manager, Pricewaterhouse Coopers.

Theatreworks is a management development programme run by the National Theatre, providing creative training opportunities. Theatreworks draws on the techniques used by actors and directors in the rehearsal room to encourage confident and creative communication by stretching the voice, the body and the imagination. Experienced trainers recognised as leaders in the field of creative training lead all Theatreworks events.
