 How we work

 Expect to be surprised, challenged and inspired in a fun supportive environment.

 This is an interactive, practical morning jam packed full of easy to use tools that you can put into practise immediately.

 Working with Jo Darby, Founder of Voice in the Room, you will gain access to techniques and skills from her 20 years experience as a barrister and theatre director. 

Jo says……

I know the pressures of having to stand up and speak. On my feet in a courtroom for 9 years, confidence, clarity and effectiveness were crucial to getting the right result. This pressurised working environment required quick thinking and the ability to make authentic connections from the outset. I get the importance of really connecting with an audience and know how to add gravitas and credibility when it’s needed most


 From previous Taster Course participants…..

  • “Fantastic, totally engaging and thought provoking”

  • “Full of top tips and really well timed”

  • “Loved the interactive exercises and the relaxed environment”
