Public Engagement - training
Malcome Love, an experienced PE practitioner and trainer, is running a two day intensive training course at Lytham St Annes in Lancashire for anyone who wants to develop their public engagement skills.
Why a retreat?
- Because effective training requires time and space, calm and concentration.
- Because training is frequently crammed into ‘available’ spaces competing with emails, ‘phone calls and zoom meetings.
- Because this should be about you and who you want to become.
- Learned how to connect with your audience
- Enhanced your ‘body language’ - movement, gestures and voice
- Revolutionised your content via the power of story-telling
- Gathered many top tips from top-communicators
- Discovered effective ways to create and prepare both your material and yourself
- Learned how to give a great interview to the media
- Built your confidence and learned how to cope with ‘performance anxieties’
The total cost for the retreat is £800 pp.
This includes accommodation (single room occupancy), dinner on 23rd, breakfast on 24th, lunch both days, refreshments during training sessions.
