What you'll learn in this public speaking class:

Jumpstart your public speaking & communication skills (at a discounted price!) by taking our improv for business, workplace communication & presentation classes bundled together.

Hacking Communication

No matter what line of business you’re in, being able to clearly communicate your ideas is a critical part of becoming a success. Whether you’re presenting a project or just taking a meeting, knowing how to think on your feet and effectively express yourself is key to connecting and collaborating with your peers. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use the fundamental techniques and philosophies of improv to enhance your workplace communication skills. You’ll get hands on experience with improv exercises and games that can help you define your message, receive information, and build upon new ideas both independently and within a team. By utilizing the same skills that actors and comedians use to support each other on stage, you’ll be able to communicate with your team on a whole new level. And maybe even make them laugh a little, too.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to understand:

  • How to use enhanced communication skills like active listening, body language, and phrasing in their work environment.
  • Best practices for written communication.
  • How to increase creativity, resolve conflicts, build teams, and enhance relationships amongst their co-workers.
  • Improve their presentation, networking, and promotional skills.

Stand and Deliver: Projecting Confidence in Presentations

Whether your current job requires you to pitch in front of clients, co-workers, venture capitalists, interviewers, or cameras, this workshop will help you improve your performance by teaching you how to use your body to deliver your presentation in a natural and convincing way. You’ll receive one-on-one movement coaching from professionals and learn how to exploit the potential of your natural movements to demonstrate confidence and improve your posture and gaze. You’ll also learn techniques for relaxation and focus before delivering your presentation.

Takeaways:

  • Receive feedback on three key aspects of your natural movement that work well for you.
  • Develop an action plan and tailored solutions targeting the aspects that are not working for you.
  • Record footage of your progress.
  • Learn three easy exercises to warm-up and focus before a presentation.
  • Get five key tips to handle different scenarios and social contexts.

Speak Up: Using Improv to Succeed in Business 

Utilizing the techniques and exercises of improv can dramatically strengthen your ability to communicate clearly and dynamically, collaborate more efficiently, and increase your creativity. In this workshop, you’ll learn to accelerate your confidence, spontaneity, leadership qualities, and much more with an introduction to improv skills. This workshop is ideal for entrepreneurs, startup teams, or anyone who wants to increase their confidence, networking skills, or sales goals.

Takeaways:

  • Learn how to accept change, new ideas, and failures in a productive way.
  • Find out tips and tricks to increase sales and interest from investors.
  • Discover how to network more efficiently and create relationships on the spot.
  • Improve your listening skills.
  • Get more comfortable taking risks.

Confidence in Communication Series
Reviewed by Anonymous on 2/18/2020
Lizzy W. is an amazing communication teacher. Because of her "not pushing" approach I actually started liking communication classes.
Confidence in Communication Series
Reviewed by Jenna E. on 1/22/2020
Lizzy Wallace does a great job with this series. The thought of ever taking an improv class has TERRIFIED me. The intro to improv in part one of this series has eased my fear and was actually fun. Lizzy does a great job of making everyone feel comfortable. I am sure I said some dumb or weird stuff during the games, but I never felt self-conscious about it (and everything gives me anxiety). Overall, the series helps you put things into perspective and enables you to overcome some mental hurdles that you may have. Lizzy is super patient, genuinely kind, and generous with time and effort to help her students. I highly recommend it!

Confidence in Communication Series
Reviewed by Vladislav D. on 1/25/2018
The class was awesome! Lizzy was able to create a unique friendly atmosphere and share lots of secrets to calm yourself down whether it's a public speaking or just a small talk at a network event. I really enjoyed all the games we played to practice. Environment is very friendly and this is the best place to start even if you think that you are to shy to go for a class like that. All communications and practices are voluntarily, so if you don't feel like speak with anybody right now - there is no pressure and you can skip it without any questions.
