  • Presentation Skills - Potential Energy (Presenting) – workshop for UWE Bristol Researchers

    Date: 17 May 2022
    Venue: TBC

    If you type “Presentation Skills” into a search engine, you will find links to something in the region of 80 million pages. Begin to explore these pages, and you will discover a wealth of extremely good advice on the topics that can help make presentations better. These will probably include areas such as appropriate pace of speech, good eye contact, effective gestures and open body language.

    Undoubtedly, this is all good advice, but most websites (and many workshops) are very good at telling you what to do but not how to actually do it. This is where Potential Energy is different: By exploring and exposing what we do intellectually, emotionally and physically when we communicate effectively in more familiar and less threatening situations, the course brings to life five fundamental principles of live communication.

  • Specific Heat Capacity (Voice & Vocal Skills) – workshop for UWE Bristol Researchers

    Date: 17 May 2022
    Venue: TBC

    Specific Heat Capacity, facilitated by Piero Vitelli, is a three-hour voice workshop for UWE Bristol postgraduate researchers. It is based on theatrical as well as practical experience, and aimed towards anyone wishing to develop their vocal ability.

    Divided into three equal parts, the workshop first explores and examines the voice itself from intention to comprehension, and gives participants the chance to form an objective opinion about their voice; something we all too frequently shy away from. The second part is a purely practical vocal warm up, drawn from many years of theatrical practise. The final section aims to equip participants with a tool with which they can develop vocal control and tonal nuance.
