Lila Rose Kaplan, KITP Playwright-In-Residence

The most memorable and effective speakers seem to know what to do when they speak. In this workshop you will learn tools for working with body and voice that will help you become a more effective speaker. You will learn strategies for communicating enthusiasm and passion for your work. You will leave with new approaches to giving talks that will be a pleasure for both you and your audiences.
