Workshop “The Onstage Surgeon” by Jerzy Zientkowski (Saturday)
Stage is but a tool. Used properly, it can improve clarity, uniqueness and connection of your speech.
The stage is there to use it as a part of your speech. It should not get in the way of telling your stories – it’s there to help you evoke emotions, build VAKS scenes and even save some time!
During the workshop you’ll learn
• How to build holograms, place them and get back to them in your stories
• How to build a timeline on stage
• What is stage scaling, how to prepare the same speech for small and huge audiences
• How to highlight important places for clarity
• How to work the distance for connection
