As simple as it sounds, it is so easily forgotten. Ever more so apparent in my experience recently when travelling to Italy. Two planes, a week apart – both delayed with the same problem, resulting in us sitting on the tarmac both times for over an hour. And yet, both experiences had an entirely different effect on the passengers, as a result of the communication we received from the captain… or didn’t.

RADA is working with Elsewhere to provide a new team building activity. Elsewhere are an uncorporate off-site organisation offering a range of imaginative and unique team building activities.
The RADA workshop, Shakespeare will Break You, is a three hour session that splits the group into teams using and excerpts from Midsummer Night’s Dream, Henry V and The Tempest to end with a competitive live performance.
Sitting within our other team building activities, this workshop will be led by RADA tutors and aims to develop communication and confidence skills. Find out more about Shakespeare will Break You.
When we are stressed our natural response is to hold the breath. Our tendency is to lift the chest and reduce the length of our exhalation. This raises our heart rate and can make us appear lacking in confidence, unapproachable and sometimes aggressive. We either play small and take up less space - or we do the opposite, puffing the chest and chin out. Neither is optimal!
Have you ever noticed that you hold your breath in any of these situations.
“Stage Fright” is a major issue for many people in business and, taking Michael Bay’s recent bout of stage fright into account, it can happen to even the most experienced public speaker.
Breathlessness, sweating and increased heart rate are all symptoms of stage fright – any of them sound familiar? Many people don’t realise the importance of communicating effectively and live their lives assuming that the image they think they project is the one received by the people they are addressing. This is often far from the case.
RADA in Business has been working with Richard Quest to help combat his unlikely fear of public speaking. His experiences of training with us were broadcast in a three-part segment aired on Richard’s show, Quest Means Business. You can view all the clips and read Richard's blog about the process here.
More details about the range of courses can be found by visting the Communication Skills Training section of our website.
RADA has teamed up with events company, Inneventive. The unique partnership aims to deliver teambuilding activities tailored specifically to the corporate sector using the unique and creative powers of both organisations. The relationship has been featured in the lastest issue of Events Magazine.
