Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Creative Consultant?
A creative consultant is the term that we came up with to describe our company. Our lead consultant has an extensive background in the performance arts, not for profit and media, and is able to bring a high level of creative expertise to the table. So, it’s consulting that has a creative edge to it.
Eg. of Creative Consulting Contracts…
If a corporation is doing health and wellness workshops, and they would like to add improv or some form of creative expression to their workshops; then they would use our company.
If an individual has been thinking about public speaking, but they are afraid and not sure if their vocal quality is good enough, or they are uncomfortable speaking in front of a group of people… then they would come to us for customized individual sessions.
If a school has an issue such as bullying or racism or youth dealing with self esteem issues and they are not sure how to address it. We can design a series of creative workshops to deal with the issue, an artivational speech or work on a production or presentation for the school that deals with the issues.
I don’t understand the voice and speech workshops… is this like singing?
Voice and Speech is different to taking singing lessons. Our workshops are designed to enhance your vocal quality. There may be some exercises we do that are similar to singing, but it’s about your breathing and the sound and quality of your voice. We do exercises that will help to strengthen your vocal chords, get you in touch with how you use your breath when you are speaking. We can work on the tone of your voice if you speak with a nasal quality, and teach you how to breath from your diaphragm. These workshops also help to boost your self confidence for public speaking and they help you to get in touch with your voice and be more comfortable on the job or when speaking with friends.
