NOTE: change to regular formatFor this month's session we will be offering a slightly different format.
In addition to our main session, we will offer a shorter session. This will allow greater flexibility to our members to share within the community.
To ensure we allow enough time for our facilitators we will begin a 5:30pm sharp!
Our main session will be:
Listening to words, and imagining meanings, with Dr Colin J HarrisonIn this session Colin Harrison will attempt to push the boundaries of the practice of facilitation. Using his experience as a communications specialist, he will use a number of novel techniques to explore the dynamics of group communication. He also believes that it is easier to change ideas through leading behaviour than the other way around: the session will therefore be highly interactive, with theoretical framing left until a short debrief at the end. The session will be unusual, interesting and sensorially stimulating meaning that you will all go home mentally exhausted (and sleep well!)
About Colin HarrisonColin Harrison has worked as a university lecturer for nearly 20 years, predominantly in France. His academic background is in Ron Langacker’s Cognitive Grammar and Sydney Lamb’s Neurocognitive Linguistics (not NLP!) which are both frameworks for the analysis and understanding of human linguistic capacity grounded in perceptual psychology (CG) and connectionist neural networks (NCL).

Our short session will be
"What's your voice telling about you?", with Michael Kelly
Why does your voice sound different on audio recording than when you normally speak?
In this short session Michael Kelly will tell you why you hear yourself differently to other people - and what you need to do, to understand what your voice is telling about you.
He will share two, simple powerful speaking techniques you can immediately use to upgrade your speaking impact
