All the World’s a Stage, and All the Men and Women Merely Players
August 8, 2014   (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM)


Acting for Business Professionals. Great business leaders are masters of commanding performances. You probably never considered taking acting lessons. But if you are familiar with Jean Stafford’s Rules for Success, you know successful people recognize how you feel is not how you act – how you act is how you feel! Vanessa Hope, programs manager for the world famous Shakespeare Theatre Company created Acting for Business Professionals because so much of the art of acting is transferable to the art of leadership. Listen in as Vanessa explains: - how your voice and body language telegraph your leadership skills - or lack of them! - Why the skills of persuasion are the same for the actor convincing Juliet to marry his Romeo and the executive seeking buy in for a business idea - What your performance says about your public speaking message. And if you are convinced acting lessons can improve your performance, Vanessa will explain how to enroll in Acting for Business Professionals at a special discounted rate.
