The half-day masterclass has been tailored for those working in the media and marketing world and is designed to give confidence in situations such as pitches, presentations and conference speaking.

The course – which runs next Friday September 19 – is being run at the National Institute of Dramatic Art’s Parade Theatres in Kensington, Sydney.

Collings has more than 40 years of experience in the performing arts in radio, film, stage and television, including her presenting role on ABC’s Play School. She also works in the voiceover industry.

Edmonds recently played the young Rupert Murdoch in Melbourne Theatre Company’s Rupert and was this week announced for the same role in the Sydney season. He has appeared in TV dramas including The Moodys, Underbelly and Home And Away. He also directs commercials via production house Curious Films.

The course will give delegates advice on how to use physical and vocal techniques to enhance their presence, along with offering insights into how to use storytelling techniques to deliver a compelling narrative in presentations.

The capacity for the event is 70 delegates. At the time of posting, there are just 19 places remaining.
