A discussion recently about conducting successful workshops led me to believe that very few people have the answers. It is ironic that the very people who are supposed to have all the answers, people conducting workshops, don’t really know how to capture and captivate an audience. It’s a shame that most people are being attracted to the more alluring and energetic voice, one that may not necessarily have the correct answer.
Workshops don’t need to be dog and pony shows where you literally have to do a somersault to keep your audience interested in what you are saying. But, you do need to lighten up a bit and care about your delivery. It’s not difficult at all and you don’t need a few years in college or even a college course to improve your public speaking skills. All you need are a few tips to remember. I’ve written several other Art jamming Workshop about conducting successful workshops. And I’ll continue into the future because I feel there is a real need here.
Let us consider a sewing hobby for example. If that’s what you’re into then, a shed workshop can provide the privacy and space to practice in peace your projects without disruptions. It can be a great place for you to store your materials such as your books, thread, sewing machines, fabric, patterns, spoons, and the like. It will also be great to have a cabinet to store your cloth, or maybe have a drafting table for laying out your patterns or for cutting. You may also wish to have an ottoman and chair with a close by lamp where you can sit comfortably and do some hand sewing. It is all about what you wish to have and having the area to do get the most from its planned use.
Make sure that your Art jamming maximizes efficiency and practicality. You know best what you will use your workspace for, so make sure you have organized your workspace to meet your needs.
Ear Covers or Art jamming earmuffs are devices that cover the entire ear and look very similar to headphones. Ear covers will reduce the damaging noise better that the plugs, but since they fit tightly over your ears they can be somewhat uncomfortable to wear over a period of time.
Make sure that you have a targeted measurable outcome, a RESULT that your attendees should get from that. Then make sure that they know what that value is. That will excite them to have that target. Make their mouths water for the results they could be getting.
The long grueling hours had matured these amateur musicians into polished professionals. They were now in demand to fill the local clubs on a full time basis. This was a huge stepping stone to the next level for the Beatles.
