Lecturing

  • Opera: unleash your potential
  • This innovative workshop-lecture has been developed together with international keynote speaker Stéphane Moriou, President of Paris-based consultancy firm MoreHuman Partners. Using the medium of opera, participants are invited to be part of an inspiring experience, demanding sensitivity and imagination whilst also drawing on experience and personal reflection. Taking the form of a two hour interactive, six part pedagogical programme incorporating the world of opera, each participant will leave with a plan of action to unleash their own potential and that of their team. The following key issues are addressed over the course of the event:

     

    how can the full potential of a team be unleashed and made a reality?

     

    how can we encourage each individual to express themselves in order to succeed beyond all measure?

     

     

    how can we collectively achieve extraordinary performance?

  • Women and Leadership
  •  

    How do leading female figures in classical music make a difference to the industry?

     

    What hurdles do they face in comparison to other professions?

     

    How has the industry changed with regard to women and what does the future hold?

     

  • These are just a few of the topics that are covered in this lecture that serves to celebrate the achievements of women within classical music and in turn inspire excellence in fellow leaders in other industries.

     

  • Giving your yourself options: a creative approach to life after music college
