Valentine’s Special 2020!

Quick-witted Improv troupe seeks audience with GSOH for laughter and fun… There will be plenty of love and laughter in the air with our Valentine’s special at Waterside Arts on the 15th February. This year team captains (and real-life couple) Bron and Sean will be going head to head to see who has to pay for their Valentine’s meal this year…

Alternative Date Night Valentine's Comedy

The last time the two went head-to-head like this Bron’s team won …which meant Sean treated her to some (very romantic) chips on the way home. Which team will win this year? You decide!

There will be plenty of funny valentine’s games to get you in the laughing mood. Whether you’re on a first date or just out with mates then this show is guaranteed to get you laughing!

Present Yourself In 2020!

We received great feedback for our last Presentation Skills workshop and will be running a new one day session in the New Year. If you have a public speaking engagement in 2020 and you’d like to tighten up your delivery or learn how to face a crowd, this fun and friendly workshop is for you!

Use the skills of a stand-up comic to deliver entertaining and engaging presentations. This short intensive session will cover practical methods and discussion on how to increase engagement, develop better storytelling and learn to ad-lib while staying on topic. Our safe and supportive workshop will help you unlock creative thinking and build authentic confidence in front of an audience.

Presentation Skills

“I attended John’s Presentation Skills workshop based on techniques used in Improv and Stand-Up Comedy. It was a different and refreshing way of looking at the skills that we use in presenting. I have been to a number of masterclasses on presenting and got little out of them. I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop and I would be happy to attend again.”
Raj Patel MBE

 

Make public speaking fun again with this interactive one day session which will run Saturday 11th January 2020 12.30-4.30pm. The course will be run by comedian John Cooper.

The workshop will be held at the ThoughtWorks space in Federation House, Balloon St, Manchester. The full cost of the course is £50. You can pay in full now or reserve your space with a £20 deposit (non-refundable) with the rest payable on the day of the course.

You will find a few tips that we shared before our last Presentation Skills workshop here. CSzUK is part of CSz Worldwide and has been delivering effective communication training since 2001.
