Douglas Wood engages every audience on an entertaining and inspiring journey. Knowing that being “inspired” can be short-lived and will soon leave us feeling “expired” once more, Doug connects with warmth, humor, and substance. He empowers any group, leading them to their own insights and inspiration through the human connection to the natural world. With his songs and stories, Doug entertains and educates, his ability to lift the human spirit makes a large hall feel like an intimate campfire. He leaves an audience laughing, misty-eyed, uplifted, and feeling just a little more confident in their own lives.
Douglas Wood: Develop Confidence and Presentation Skills.
“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”
Public speaking is often cited as everyone’s greatest fear, ahead of spiders and snakes.
Yet, it’s an undeniable reality in many of our jobs, and for that matter, lives.
To help your employees gain confidence in themselves, on-the-job IMPROV has created a series of non-intimidating games intended to:
reduce or eliminate inhibitions
conquer public speaking fears
reduce nervous energy via active participation
encourage making bolder choices in both their work and personal lives
recover from the unexpected with poise
incorporate theatrical principles into their work to maximize the effectiveness of their ideas and messages
