Instructor: Dan Crane
Prior Experience: Not required.
Whether it’s the boardroom or lunchroom, client or co-worker, maximize the potential of every meeting, presentation and negotiation in the business world. Learn how to listen and communicate more effectively and become more relaxed, present and persuasive in public speaking through the study of physical, vocal, analytical, and textual techniques used by actors and directors in the theatre.

What Students Say: “I really enjoyed the instructor and content we covered in classes–the material and exercises were engaging, informative, and highly relevant for business professionals (or anyone, for that matter!). I noticed the benefits of having this time carved out each week to focus on tools and techniques for being an impactful communicator–my boss actually commented on noticeable improvements in my “meeting presence” over the last few months in the context of my annual performance review.”
