Presenting with Confidence MAPP Masterclass | | Tuesday, 14. May 2019

presented by Petra Kalive.
The Centre for Positive Psychology warmly invites you to a professional development opportunity exclusively for our MAPP students and alumni.  This is the first Masterclass in a series of 3 that will be offered in 2019.  This workshop is capped at 15 participants so please register early to avoid disappointment.  We will waitlist participants to determine if there is sufficient interest for a second session. 

• Develop awareness about your presentation style
• Improve vocal technique
• Increase awareness of physical habits that impede effective presentation
• Strategies for coping with nerves and the ‘inner critic’
• How to best engage with your audience
This is an active participation workshop so please be prepared to practice your emerging skills in a safe environment.
Petra Kalive trained at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts and has since been working professionally as an actor, director and facilitator.
She is currently Artistic Director of Union House Theatre at University of Melbourne Student Union. She has worked for Melbourne Theatre Company, Sydney Theatre Company, Malthouse Theatre, Arena Theatre Company, Complete Works, St Martins Youth Arts Centre and Monash and Latrobe Universities Performing Arts Program. She was Co-Artistic Director of Melbourne Playback Theatre Company from 2011-2014. She has been conducting workshops in Presenting Skills for the past seven years in a variety of contexts, including at Qantas, NAB and in various capacities at the University of Melbourne. She uses the transferable skills she has learnt in performance as an actor and director to provide practical solutions to common presenting anxiety problems. Her skills as a director and facilitator provide real-time, actionable feedback on your presenting skills.

“I attended Petra’s ‘presenting with confidence’ 2 hour workshop in April 2019. As a seasoned presenter, I learnt additional skills and found the workshop extremely valuable. Petra is a very experience facilitator and teacher in this space, and everyone in the workshop, regardless of level of skill or experience, left with individual feedback and new skills to practice and work on. I would highly recommend this workshop” – Associate Professor Aaron Jarden.
