Description of Workshop

This workshop is principally designed as a team-building exercise, but also includes modules in communications and body language. It is a 1-day event delivered by Brian in collaboration with the actor and teacher Harris Gordon. It combines networking, movement and voice exercises, debate about how to best run meetings and presentations, and acting exercises.

The culmination of the day is with teams rehearsing and staging a short play based on the topics discussed during the day.
