SMK’s Masterclass and specialist workshop series invite highly experienced campaigners, researchers and commentators to share their knowledge and expertise. These workshops provide detailed technical information and insight about strategies and tactics designed to provide campaigners with:

  • Practical information and advice about effective campaigning tools and tactics.
  • Ideas and advice on how to overcome specific campaign challenges. 
  • A peer network of campaigners and an opportunity to learn from each other

Getting Your Voice Heard

This is a hands-on workshop for anyone looking to work on their influencing skills, presence and charisma, whether your focus is on building strong relationships in one-to-one meetings or expressing campaign messages succinctly in front of an audience.

We all have natural presence, sometimes we just don’t know how to amplify it or our nerves stop us from accessing it. Viv Groskop draws on her experience as a comedian and BBC Radio 4 presenter for this masterclass on achieving a compelling connection in any context, anxiety-free.

Viv is a sought-after workshop leader and facilitator known for bringing sensitive, individualised feedback and humour into training in the corporate and charity sectors. She specialises in presence, public speaking, assertiveness, influencing skills and leadership development. With a background in stand-up comedy, she has a particular interest in authenticity and impact and in helping others to develop a powerful and individual voice. Viv is a regular on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Review and Front Row and has appeared on Newsnight and Any Questions.

The fee for this masterclass is £95.
