Improv company launches 'Charisma Key' workshop

Improvised comedy company The Spontaneity Shop has launched a new workshop aimed at professional people who want to gain more charisma.

Head trainer, Deborah Frances-White, said: "Most people assume charisma is something you either have or don't. But you can be charismatic without being very tall, tremendously good-looking or wildly rich and successful. Charismatic people behave in a charismatic way, and behaviour is something which can be taught and practised.

"Some people are going to find the process easier than others, just like some people have more of a sense of rhythm than others. But anyone can take a dance class and get better at dancing. In the same way, anyone can attend our 'Charisma Key' workshop and gain more impact. The important thing is to remove the fear that is generated in stressful situations such as job interviews, presentations or negotiations. That is our particular specialism."

The Spontaneity Shop was formed as an improvised comedy company in 1997 and has offered corporate training since 2001.

The first open 'Charisma Key' workshop will be held in Euston at the end of March 2007, with further workshops taking place monthly.
