Use Skills from the Actor's Playbook to Master the Art of Communication
Bookmark and Share
Have you ever sat in an audience, watching someone who was 'on fire' and wondered how they did it? We are all intensely alive on the inside. The challenge is learning how to tap into our vitality and ignite the fire—on demand. The ability to 'turn it on' for any audience is a huge part of succeeding in business and in life. When you’re standing in front of a group—or just the one person you want to connect with—do you break into a cold sweat or forget what you want to say? When you give a presentation at work, is your audience bored to tears or missing your point entirely? Actors have learned how to communicate with genuine emotion every time they’re on stage or in front of the camera. Laurie Burton used over 30 years of experience as an actor, adjunct professor at USC and corporate trainer for companies such as 20th Century Fox, Mattel and IBM to her book Presenting You: Use Skills from the Actor's Playbook to Master the Art of Communication. It can teach you how to bring forth your own passion, energy and animation and deliver the ultimate performance—every time, and we'll talk about how on this program!
