OUT PROFESSIONALS PRESENTS ‘BUSINESS AS PERFORMANCE,’ AN INNOVATIVE CAREER WORKSHOP WITH YUVAL DAVID.
On Tuesday, August 15, Out Professionals invites you to take part in “Business as Performance,” an interactive workshop on personal branding and presentation skills, led by acclaimed actor Yuval David.
Using goal-oriented communication techniques developed during a career in film, television, theatre and voice-over work, Yuval aims to enhance self-awareness and build the self-confidence that comes with delivering a polished pitch or presentation.
When you see an actor deliver a message with conviction, each word and gesture is part of that message. Using the same skills actors use in performance, a business person can learn to demonstrate conviction, communicate sincerity, and be in-the-moment in changing scenarios.
By considering what your audience actually sees and hears, you gain a sense of which habits — vocal tone, gesture, weight shift, postural alignment — may fail to reinforce the impression you want to give.
Through exercises and games, you learn to enhance your communication skills by exploring the roles of voice and physicality. You learn how to focus on breathing techniques, projection and tonality, along with improving posture and gesture.
This immersive, interactive workshop is designed to help you:
- Increase self-awareness, gain self-confidence
- Learn to present and pitch in a way that is authentic and empowering
- Communicate assurance and build trust
- Connect quickly, interact memorably and follow up effectively.
Yuval David has an enviable record of accomplishment in film, television, theatre and voice-over work, where he is known for memorable performances resulting from bold choices. Using the tools of an actor, Yuval leads workshops on self-presentation in professional and personal environments. In addition to performing artists, his students include those in business, law, finance, politics and education. Acquiring techniques developed through performance and personal branding, his clients benefit from enhanced self-awareness, a keener focus on goals, and the self-confidence that accompanies polished presentation skills.
