How are you showing up?
Remote meetings, job interviews, pitches, negotiation, and even teaching have become harder since the world has gone remote.
It can feel dehumanizing and discouraging. It’s not your fault. You haven’t been trained.
Your image is everything!
A famous study (Mehrabian & Wiener, 1967) discovered that 80% of communication is non-verbal. So how can we really communicate efficiently when all we have is a webcam, a microphone and a small rectangle of space in someone else’s screen?
Learn from actors and understand your medium
We are all broadcasting our image and our personalities through cameras, computers, and microphones. It’s a whole new universe.
Actors understand their medium and thrive on constraints. Let’s learn from them.
The New Normal is your opportunity to transform
Lean into your strengths and identify and tackle your weaknesses
Earn and retain the attention of your audience, harness your emotions, articulate your passion
Improve your storytelling, business pitching, video performing, interviewing, public speaking, and podcasting skills

Get insight into how the instructor works
For actors, the New Normal is really nothing new!
The ability to connect emotionally with your material and commit authentically to what you are saying is essential.
Whether as a Performer working on a role, or a Professional in an everyday situation when you may be requested to speak or present to an audience, that ability to tap into your own emotional life,
engage your own personality, and bring that connection to your audience is the secret to a dynamic, memorable
and compelling performance.
Connection and empathy are the pathways to communication.
All good Actors know this. And good film and television Actors have learned to effectively use the camera
and microphone to reach their audience. These tools are their allies, not obstacles. They open the door to connection.
This so-called New Normal is what actors use all the time in their professional lives.
