Have you got gravitas? Can you command a room? Have you got presence? Just some of the questions posed by Lisa Akkenson, from RADA Business, at the Insurance Institute of Liverpool Masterclass earlier this year.
With more than 20 years' experience of working within the public and private sector in the UK and internationally, Ms Akkenson entertained, educated and encouraged students from the Institute to be the very best they could be.
Previously, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) had a reputation for being elitist, but 25 years ago Rada Business was established as a social enterprise and, since then, has ensured that talent from every walk of life is recognised and celebrated.
Ms Akkenson has worked for more than 20 years with executives and at grassroots level. Her aim is to train and develop participants to have a voice and be the very best person they can be, using
RADA Business methods.
With Ms Akkenson's performing background, it was no surprise that her training was extremely interactive. As an NLP Master Practitioner, she was able to understand her audience as she put her students through their paces.
Delegates left the event knowing how to walk and talk with gravitas and confidence.
